Hope somone can help me,

I have a cron running a server side spam filter script which sends out a confirmation email to all incoming mail, it runs every minute, as 99.999 % of spam email is never replied to or has a fake return address and error message is returned by the server that the confirmation request was sent to, and in turn ends up in my PINE box which is normal, Now can I edit this >> /dev/null 2>&1 to just trash those incoming error emails and NOT trash error mails resulting from bad cron syntax ? as I would still like to see those to make all is well with other scripts I run from Cron, but those other ones tend to build up pretty quickly.
