Actually, the "feedback" is when it fails.  If you want total failure, you
can use a configuration that matches the current one.  But it isn't really
RFC compliant, since the RFC really suggests a longer period.

What we could do is modify the failMessage method to send notices related to
temporary failures, rather than just permanent ones.  That might be feasible
now, with some of the other changes that have been made to RemoteDelivery.

DSN == Delivery Status Notification.  There is an RFC for it.
