Could you take a look at the bounce processing page
(http://YOUR-SERVER.TLD/lists/admin/LISTNAME/bounce or so) and tell us
what the settings are?

Since you say "monthly notices", I suppose you're not seeing
spam-related bounces (that would be daily...).  For the sake of
completeness, I mention that I've seen a _lot_ of bounces coming back
because spammers have picked up on the mailman admin addresses.  These
get through to a human because they're "unrecognized bounces".
