The original message content is sent to the envelope sender only
(subject to bounce_size_limit restrictions).
Sending automatic notifications is a tricky business. It may result
in infinite loops or worse, one message becoming multiple messages
which in turn become an avalanche of mail.
Safety is one reason why Postfix avoids returning multiple copies
of undeliverable mail. Privacy is another: most delivery problems
are unrelated to the message content, so there is no need to always
give the content to the system administrator.
It's easy enough to add one bounce daemon parameter that flips the
switch from "headers only" to "full message" for postmaster
notifications. Unfortunately, I have no time to implement that.
