Sorry that my original message was html, normally I convert before sending... 

I checked the bounce settings, I also checked the bounce log. It appears as though the bounce feature was meant more for hotmail or other non standard mail types . 
It seems to me there would be a less convoluted way of handling these. As it stands now the nomail is qualified by x times per hour for y amount of days. Seems very inefficient

Basically, a group of people from a company that is no longer alive were in my maillist. Sending an email thru standard email bounces undeliverable. However, in Mailman, I understand these accounts are supposed to be moved to nomail status. There in lays the problem, they are staying as is.

    Please refrain from posting in HTML.

    Bounce messages aren't instantly removed.  Mailman has settings on the Bounce Options page to determine when someone should be removed.  You might want to check those out.
