You can look in the logs, but short of making extensive
modifications to the system so that all bounces come back to both
addresses, there's no way to do this. Moreover, most senders don't
want/can't handle recipient bounces, since there is nothing they can
do about them.
If I send a message to the mailman-users list and I receive a
bounce from fred at example.com, the only person who can do anything
with this is the mailing list administrator.
