False.  The admin will receive copies of bounce messages that Mailman
was unable to reliably process.

False.  Mailman v 2.0 has a poorly documented bounce handling system
that works reasonably (not well, not horribly).  Its largely
unconfigurable beyond what action to take on bouncers (nomail,
unsubscribe, etc).

v2.1 Improves on this situation significantly -- not to the level of
full VERP, but close.
