All three of the above issues are one-shot emails unless I misunderstand
something in Mailman.

- List owners get removed either for AOL's policy changes or due to the
  "regular" notifications out of Mailman such as sub/unsub notifications.
- Nomail notifications are one off messages mailed out at 9am every morning.
- Removal notification messages to a user are a one off.

This *looks* that VERP won't help me. It's only issues like the hotmail
policy that VERP would dramatically help with.
