Is there any possibility to route the undeliverable mail notification (for example mail box full) to a one particular user mail id.

You can specify a Postmaster address in the SMTP configuration, but I don't know if undeliverable messages go to it or not.

I looked at RFC 2821, which is the SMTP specification document, and found
Quote:
If an SMTP server has accepted the task of relaying the mail and
later finds that the destination is incorrect or that the mail cannot
be delivered for some other reason, then it MUST construct an
"undeliverable mail" notification message and send it to the
originator of the undeliverable mail (as indicated by the reverse-
path). Formats specified for non-delivery reports by other standards
(see, for example, [24, 25]) SHOULD be used if possible.
So the answer to your question is that under SMTP protocol it is not possible to route an undeliverable message to a single mail box.
