Mailman has two logs, 'smtp' and 'smtp-failure' which will tell you
(smtp) that the post was delivered to the MTA and how many recipients
there were, but not their addresses, and (smtp-failure) if there were
any errors in delivery to the MTA.

If you have automated bounce processing enabled for the list, Mailman's
'bounce' log will tell you which addresses bounced.
