[Mailman-Users] Uncaught bounce notifications

     I have seen on this mailing list a few posts on the thread of
"Uncaught bounce notifications" but have not found the answer I need.
One of our user's received one of these notifications and the list owner
wants to know why the user received it. She believed that if 
"Should Mailman send you, the list owner, any bounce messages that
failed to be detected by the bounce processor?" is set to Yes in the
Bounce Processing Section, the list owner should only get the bounces
and not the sender. If my understanding is correct, and please tell me
if I am wrong, sendmail (our MTA) will send a bounce notification to the
sender regardless of this mailman setting?

     Also, is there a way to avoid user's replying to
listname-bounce at list.odu.edu? We would, of course, prefer that
subscribers to reply to listname at list.odu.edu but the bounce address is
the one that mailman uses when sending the mail out.
