Thank you Mark again.

I administrative some lists in an Linux RH8 with mailman-2.1.1-5 ver.
It seems to be problem with one of the lists with only 10 "users". The
most of them sudenly doesnot recieve mails from the list and they get a
bounce score (1 or 2). The rest normally get emails.
Is that strange? The list stop sending mails to scored users?

bounce_score_threshold is 5 and bounce_info_stale_after is 7

Thank you again

The actual returned bounce notice is not kept. If you set
bounce_notify_owner_on_disable to Yes, you will receive a copy of the
bounce notice that results in a member disable, but not the previous
ones that just increment the score.

You should set bounce_score_threshold and bounce_info_stale_after to
values appropriate for the amount of traffic on your list. The normal
default values of 5.0 and 7 days respectively are appropriate for lists
with posts every day, but a list with only one or two posts a week might
do better with 2.0 and 14 days respectively.
