[Mailman-Users] Manually marking users as bouncing/bad addresses?

Would it be useful to look at the logs to see the bounces?

As an example I run a script to look for members who have been knocked
off the list by excessive bouncing...

  MONTH=`date -d"last month" +%b`

  echo $MONTH
  grep -hs "disabled " /home/mailman/logs/bounce.1  \
    /home/mailman/logs/bounce | \
    grep -vs "already disabled" | \
    grep -s $MONTH | \
    cut -f6- "-d " |sort

I also run some similar checks against my MTA logs.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
