distinguish reason (user, admin, bounce). If you know a little python,
it shouldn't be too hard to modify it to list the "by bounces" only.

Other than that, there's no way to list them from the web interface,
but as long as the normal cron jobs are running (cron/disabled in
particular, and you can also run it manually), any dead addresses will
be automatically deleted after a number of days equal to the product
of bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings and
bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings_interval following their initial
disable. You can set bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings to zero if you
want them unsubscribed immediately (i.e., the next time cron/disabled
