That and the fact that not all MTAs support VERP at all, and some of the 
ones that do support VERP don't support it by default.  So, we leave this 
option turned off by default.

VERP is available on Mailman 2.1.5, but it does have to be enabled in the 
configuration file, before you can actually see the option in the web admin 
UI for your list(s).

Which is actually the problem here, since the OP is on a shared server and 
they're not likely to allow him to enable VERP since doing so would make 
everyone else capable of doing the same thing, and that would probably just 
*bury* the server performance.
