Some folks on the list claim to have been able to redirect the bounces
to themselves by changing some aliases, but I haven't been able to
duplicate their feats.  I have modified the source to get the bounces
copied to the local mailman user.

I've trouble-shoot sites with similar problems.  In those cases, the
problem sites were running over-zealous spam protection.  A good test
case is to grab a header/body from one of your Mailing list messages and
construct a text file out of it, modify a few items to make sure you get
the bounces and then drop it into the mail stream while su-ed as user

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
