Bounces that result in a disable are sent to the listowner. Ones that
just increment the score are logged in the 'bounce' log, but the
message itself is discarded.

Thus, if you just want to know if bounces are occurring, you can look
at the 'bounce' log. There is no way within Mailman to see the bounce
message for a bounce that does not result in a disable. You can adjust
the bounce settings so that every bounce results in a disable, or you
might be able to tell your MTA/MDA to send a copy of all mail
addressed to the list-bounces address to the list-owner address as
