	Look at your logs.  Specifically, the "bounce" log.

	Mailman does not do reports.  If you want this kind of 
information, you'll need to look at the logs, or run a tool that does 
that and then generates a report that looks the way you want. 
Assuming such a tool does not already exist, you'll need to write one.
