I'm guessing that these too are bounces being returned to the list
address instead of or in addition to the list-bounces address.

I think there may be some issue with the configuration of your outgoing
MTA. What happens if you send a message directly to one of these
addresses from the Mailman server using 'localhost' port 25 as the
smtp server? See the post at
for a way to do this. If you try the script in that post with your own
address as both the From: and the value of 'env', you should receive
back exactly what Mailman receives when it sends.
