Enabling VERP (for at least one posting) might be more effective.

Yes, you can do this with bin/withlist.  You will want to 
setDeliveryStatus(user, MemberAdaptor.BYADMIN) to set nomail.  Then to 
untick them, you will want to search for those that their delivery 
status set to BYADMIN and set it back to MemberAdaptor.ENABLED.

But checking the Mailman and MTA logs (especially with VERP enabled) 
seems more productive.
