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.
