	The bounces themselves only exist on the server long enough to be 
processed by the BounceRunner.  After that, they are thrown away.  If 
you want to see the individual bounces themselves, you're going to 
have to make some configuration changes to Mailman or how you 
integrate Mailman into your MTA.

	For details on how to make those kinds of configuration changes, 
I would encourage you to spend some time searching the archives.
