Because, *should the message bounce to a user*... instead of the
original poster getting the bounce notification, the bounce-processor will.

This is why this is the way it is. It is perfectly acceptable, and
preferred, behaviour.

You think your users are confused now? If this behaviour wasn't there,
they'd be even more confused upon getting notified of bounces for email
to people they (probably) don't know.. ;-)
