Well, if the senders don't care whether I actually got their mail, it won't matter either way. They will have wasted their time writing it in the first place, not mine.
Those people who do care, however, will at least have the SMTP error message to tell them that their mail couldn't be delivered and why (and pretty much instantly, at that), which is a whole lot better than if their mail had gone to ferment in my spam folder for a few days or even been deleted outright.
