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`
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
