    You can not loose any mail which you did not accept in the first place.
    That is exactly the point of rejecting mails during the smtp dialogue.

    If you are not allowed to reject any mail for your domain (what about
    invalid recipients and viruses?!?) you can only tag mails with
    spamassassin etc. and forward all the crap to the users until they choke
    in spam.

    Correct.

    I suggest you first clear up with your management what policy should be
    applied for mail submission on your server, clear up probable
    misunderstandings between the rejection of a mail and the bouncing of a
    mails, and then implement that policy on the server. Everything else is a
    waste of time.
