Yes.  This is the last bounce notice which mailman (<list>-bounces 
address) received.  In general, it contains only the bounced addresses 
and is no use for spammers (or useful to exclude them from their spam 
list if they are clever enough).

You have to hack mailman code in order not to attach the bounce notice. 
  Here is the hack:

You may also want to customize your probe.txt in the template directory.
