Is there any way to configure No Spam Today so that it doesn't send a reply to all Spam messages?

There seems to be a quite common misunderstanding. NoSpamToday! sends its'
rejection not in a separate reply message but as a status code within the SMTP session. It is the reply to the DATA command: In the accept case it is "250 message
queued for delivery" (or something similar), in the reject case it is "550 [your
rejection message]". The mail delivery failure notice is not created by your mail
server, but by the sending mail server. The mail delivery failure notice typically
does not reach spammers at all, as a spammer won't give his real address, but it
can be useful to inform legitimate users that their message was tagged as spam and
might not be read.

I was confused by this as well. You may with to clerify the functionality of this as you did above in documentation or even the admin wizzard itself.
