Ignoring "file has vanished" errors?

Is it possible to have rsync ignore 'file has vanished' errors and not
return an error on exit?

I have a backup script that utilizes rsync, and based on the return
code determines whether the backup was successful. Postfix queue files
and user maildir files being deleted during the backup process
shouldn't be enough to cause the backup to fail.
