You have three choices:

1. Backscatter bounced spam to (probably forged) senders
2. Don't tell senders that you discarded their e-mail
3. Reject during the SMTP session so the sender can be aware

Normally, I'm a huge fan of "whatever works for you" but in this case there is no alternative. #1 and #2 are WRONG. #3 is only way to function well on the Internet.
