Steven Stern wanted us to know:

It rejects it at the SMTP level before sendmail ever accepts it, so the
sending MTA is responsible for generating the bounce message, not your

That means that something that your system tried to send something and
some other MTA rejected the message.

Honestly, the way that I stay on top of spam filtering is I look at
mails in the postmaster account and see what postini is rejecting and
filter on those URL's.  Works for me <tm>.
