At least on current versions of Mailman, mail is sent with an envelope
of "$listname-bounces at host.example"; that means, bounces go back to
that adress, and Exim then uses /etc/aliases lines to pipe all bounces
to the mailman bounce-processing. It should be possible to change that
line to send the mail (the bounce) to you *and* pipe it to mailman.
