One other thing:

In MM2.1 you'll have to set up a "site list" which is where

- all password reminders appear to come from
- all bounces to list owners will be directed to

By default this site list is called "mailman".  So if a message to a
list owner starts to bounce, mailman-bounces@dom.ain will get those
notifications.  However, what happens if messages to
mailman-owner@dom.ain start to bounce?

To break the loop I'm currently creating a mailman-loop@dom.ain
address that all bounces to the site list's owner gets directed to.
This address is a simple append-to-file alias since there's little
that Mailman can do if the site list owners aren't reachable.  It
currently appends to $prefix/data/owner-bounces.mbox.
