Well, sure. The point is that right now, my server rejects a lot of
spam, so the bounces end up in my regular mailbox. I am effectively
boune-spamming myself. So I'd rather have the bounce generated by
master go elsewhere.

You mean the payload? It rewrites the 822 header, but not the
message body.

okay, that's also an interesting solution, but it won't solve my
problem: if the final recipient server rejects the message which
procmail forwarded, I get the bounce.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
