I’ve been getting a few of these emails lately. It’s my own servers rejecting email I’m send to myself.

I’m not sure yet where to adjust these settings. I’m not even sure what software is rejecting it. I suspect amavis.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format...

------------=_1284684427-87898-0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Disposition: inline
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

A message from <dan@example.com>
to: dan@localhost.example.org

was considered unsolicited bulk e-mail (UBE).

Our internal reference code for your message is 87898-14/TwyFXN60EyeL

The message carried your return address, so it was either a genuine mail
from you, or a sender address was faked and your e-mail address abused
by third party, in which case we apologize for undesired notification.

We do try to minimize backscatter for more prominent cases of UBE and
for infected mail, but for less obvious cases some balance between
losing genuine mail and sending undesired backscatter is sought,
and there can be some collateral damage on either side.

First upstream SMTP client IP address: [209.183.37.61] 
According to a 'Received:' trace, the message apparently originated at:
  [209.183.37.61], [10.68.155.156] really [172.16.130.170]

Message-ID: <9E04185D-53BD-420F-A386-FE48350B936A@example.com>

It seems like some of my emails are merely being discarded:

Short term solution, turn off spam detection in amavis:

@bypass_spam_checks_maps  = (1);  # controls running of anti-spam code
