If you set bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings to some number greater than
zero, then the bounce will only disable the members delivery and won't
remove the member from the list until a number of days equal to the
product of bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings and
bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings_interval has elapsed.

There are no reports other than the message you get from
bounce_notify_owner_on_disable. The actual bounce messages are not
saved anywhere.
