      if these attempts are rejected (logs say "NOQUEUE ... Unknown recipient
      in ... "), then you are ok.

      if you accept messages and later bounce them, then you are not ok (you
      would be a backscatter source).

    Your message has been successfully submitted and would be delivered to recipients shortly.
