Having received one of the things now, it seems that you're not actually
sending bounce messages as such. On the other hand, you're right that
this won't result in false confirmation in the case of autorespenders
that (correctly) respond to the envelope sender - sadly, there's no real
shortage of broken autoresponders that will reply to the from header
