OK, but if you reject mail from <> you're likely to be blacklisted.  I
certainly won't accept mail from domains that reject bounces!  I am
definitely not alone in this.  I think you'd be better off trying to
find a blacklist that isn't too fascist.  I have had luck with the
rfc-ignorant.org blacklists and bl.spamcop.net.

Also, by the time the message gets passed off to procmail, exim will
already have replaced the <> with MAILER-DAEMON.  If you want to
procmail any mail from MAILER-DAEMON, go ahead, but if I were you, I'd
just put it in its own folder rather than /dev/null.  You are risking
losing something useful if you filter such messages.
