[Mailman-Users] All *-admin Addresses Bouncing

All emails sent to LIST-admin@ are bouncing.  The sendmail alias for
LIST-admin is set up correctly, and from the logs, I can see it was
piped to Mailman.  I saw an old reference to this on the Mailman
lists, but I never found a fix.

I am running Mailman 2.1.6 and Sendmail 8.2.11.

Here is an example of a bounce I recieved:

>From mailman-bounces at listdomain.com Fri Sep 30 11:19:21 2005
Subject: Uncaught bounce notification
From: mailman-bounces at listdomain.com
To: admin-owner at listdomain.com
Date: Fri, 30 Sep 2005 11:19:18 -0700

Part 1:

The attached message was received as a bounce, but either the bounce
format was not recognized, or no member addresses could be extracted
from it.  This mailing list has been configured to send all
unrecognized bounce messages to the list administrator(s).

For more information see:

Part 2:

>From SNIP Fri Sep 30 11:19:16 2005
From: <SNIP>
To: admin-admin at listdomain.com
Subject: Test
Date: Fri, 30 Sep 2005 12:35:25 -0400

Part 2.1:

message body...

In the mailman/logs/bounce, I see:

Sep 30 11:19:18 2005 (964) bounce message w/no discernable addresses: <SNIP>
Sep 30 11:19:18 2005 (964) forwarding unrecognized, message-id: <SNIP>

This happens with all emails sent to the *-admin addresses, so I hope
the sender addresses, which I cut out, aren't important.

Everything else seems to work fine.
