RCPT NOTIFY=NEVER - Synchronous Bounces using a smart host.

Currently we are testing OpenEMM vs our current PhpList installation. We are using Port25 PowerMTA as our outbound SMTP host. PowerMTA will send a email to senders address if the destination mail server returns a error (ie Synchronous bounce). This email is a bounce account we have created for our campaign which is later then processes by Phplist for bounce management.

Now for Openemm I know it handles synchronous bounce by reading the maillog. Since I am using a smart host this kind of rules this out as solution since sendmail will always see successful delivery to my internal PowerMta box. I was hoping to use OpenEMM's asynchronous bounce processing to handle these synchronous bounce emails. However I could never get PowerMTA to put synchronous bounces to a email account from Openemm. So I tuned on SMTP command logging on and was getting the following.


It would seem that Openemm is turning off Notify option. My question is can it be turned on or set to Failure/Delay
