[Mailman-Users] slightly OT: on not becoming a spam source

One or more AOL subscribers is reporting posts to one of our mailing
lists as spam. Every time there's a post to this list, both we and our
upstream provider get a feedback report from AOL. This report provides
the message-ID for the offending email, but not the recipient's address.
AOL claims I should be able to find the offended recipient(s) with just
the message-ID, but I do not believe they are correct about that.
grep'ing for the message-ID in maillog returns *all* of the ~250
recipients for each post.
I would like to find which AOL user(s) are complaining and unsubscribe
One method would be to write a script that sends an individual email
containing a unique ID to each subscriber, and see if AOL sends feedback
complaint(s) for those.
1. In putting together a script, do I need to include this header:
Return-Path: <mylist-bounces at example.org>
("mylist" and "example.org" are fact-free examples)
2. Is there some better way of isolating a given recipient if all I have
from a spam report is a single message-ID?
This is on OpenBSD 4.2 running postfix 2.4.3 and mailman 2.1.10.
