I know this may be weird, but hear me out. I've set up our sendmail with
a ruleset that basically looks in the password file and if the user that
is being sent To: is not in the passwd file then it passes the mail onto
procmail (instead of returning it as bounced mail). Why? Well because I
want to capture all the users that are numbers (for example
2345345(_at_)whatever(_dot_)com) and pass them to a program. This is no
got it working, this is what I am using for a /etc/procmailrc:
* ^To:[ ]*[0-9]
The problem now is if I mail to a user who doesn't exist on the system and
who ISN'T a number I get a procmail boo-boo, for example:

Its an ugly returned message... What I want to do is generate the User
Unknown Mailer-DAEMON message and return that... any ideas?
