Well, as i already said the destination usually DOES accept the forward
mail without problems. But there are some cases (like virus detected,
spam detected, mailbox full) when it rejects the forwarded mail. In that
case *my* server is generating the bounce. I cannot do anything at the
destination server(s) since they are not under my control.
