Ah, I misunderstood the original question. My apologies.

Hehe, indeed :)

That should work fine :)

That's a great idea to build upon.

someone may abuse this to post email by setting the sender address to
the intended recipient, and posting to random outside mailboxes.
The following works too (after setting up a local dev-null alias):
This silently drops email messages, but at least it logs the delivery to
the dev-null alias, so there's a trace of the email message even though
it won't really get delivered to any user's mailbox and there's no error
responce sent to anyone.

Setting up a `mail-sink' alias, which traps all outgoing messages this
way, may be an easier way to recover the undelivered messages. It
fringes on privacy violation, though, so I'm now going to pick one or
the other :)
