Unfortunately, I work on a site which is hosted using cPanel. It's a far
cry from the problem free experience I have with my own mailman installs
which "just work." When they finally did the upgrade to 2.1.2, I had some
immediate problems with bounces but then the server admin applied an update
from cPanel that seems to have fixed that. I don't know it the bounces were
at all similar to what you're having, but I mention it in case you haven't
applied whatever updates cPanel has pushed out. It was either a mailman or
exim update, I'm not sure since I don't admin the box.
Of course, the cPanel upgrade to 2.1.2 also broke some virtual host stuff
for me that I have yet to get the host to work out. I have tried and tried
to contact the folks at cPanel directly to find out what patches they apply
to mailman and request the sources for those changes (as *required* by the
GPL) to no avail. They have simply ignored me. I find that really
annoying. If anyone knows of a way to reach someone at cPanel, please let
us know. I'd like to point out to them that they *need* to make their
changes available to the public. I'm not a fan of folks making money off of
the work of open source software and then not even having the courtesy of
honoring the few license requirements there are.

I got stopped by a cop the other day. He said, "Why'd you run that stop
sign?" I said, "Because I don't believe everything I read."
