The only password reminder that should be sent to
post+bboardname at bboardhost.com is the one for that member, and you can
turn off reminders for that member on that member's options page.

In addition to turning off reminders for the one
post+bboardname at bboardhost.com member (which I think is the best
approach in this case), You can also go to the list's General Options
page and A) set send_reminders to No or B) (not quite your 'B') set
umbrella_list to Yes and umbrella_member_suffix to '-owner' (the
default) and all password reminders will be sent to listname-owner
instead of the member.
