There are some additional measures implemented historically
in order to prevent bounces to be send to innocent third parties:

   mail will not be delivered to its recipients, a non-delivery
   notification (bounce) will be sent to the sender by amavisd-new
   (unless suppressed). Bounce (DSN) will not be sent if a virus
   name matches $viruses_that_fake_sender_maps, or to messages
   from mailing lists (Precedence: bulk|list|junk), or for spam
   exceeding spam_dsn_cutoff_level
