Postmark Bounce Hook
Postmark has the optional ability to POST to an url anytime a message you have sent bounces. django-postmark comes with an urlconf and view for this purpose. If you wish to use this then add:
to your root urls.py. This will cause your bounce hook location to live at /postmark/bounce/. Then simply add in the url to your Postmark settings (with the username and password specified by POSTMARK_API_USER/PASSWORD if set) and django will accept POSTS from Postmark notifying it of a new bounce.
