      This is correct behavior; SMTP mail to unknown recipient is rejected.

      This is correct behavior; undeliverable local mail submitted via the
      sendmail(1) interface is returned to sender.

      Add a virtual_alias_maps entry redirecting root to a valid
      recipient. If you don't want these potentially important messages,
      you can direct the valid recipient to the discard: transport with a
      transport_maps entry.
