You have a policy problem with your MTA, not your MLM.
Your MTA SHOULD NOT accept email that it won't deliver. Your MTA
SHOULD reject email it can't or won't deliver. Reject, not bounce.
You are running a server that is a significant source of backscatter,
and that hurts the Internet (and you). It's not as bad as spamming,
and it's not as bad as silently discarding email (as some have
suggested) but you should fix it.
The solution is MTA-dependent, and I don't recall seeing any help in
the Mailman FAQ, but it's been a while since I looked.
