Yes. Just set Bounce processing->bounce_processing to No.

If you do nothing else, the returned bounces will be ignored and you
won't see them. If your MTA uses aliases, you can change the alias for
the listname-bounces address to send the mail somewhere else. For
example, if there is an alias that looks like

listname-bounces: "|path_to/mail/mailman bounces listname"

you could change it to

listname-bounces: "|path_to/mail/mailman owner listname"

and all bounces will be sent to the list owner.
