As leafnode typically runs on small sites, I would just have a cron job
check failed.postings, and mail me, if there is anything in there. But one
could even go as far as writing a script, that will send a notification to
the From (or Reply-To, if there is one) address, and then automatically
delete the posting from failed.postings. Anyway, I would leave this part up
to the site admin.

If you implement it, then please make it optional.

Yes, I forgot that I can also negate it with "!".
