Ralf means Mailman's 'unsubscribe' log. Also check Mailman's 'bounce'

What are the list's Bounce processing settings? Are
bounce_notify_owner_on_disable and bounce_notify_owner_on_removal set
to Yes. In particular, if bounce_notify_owner_on_disable is Yes, the
list owner will get a copy of the bounce DSN in the notice.

Also, is there anything in Mailman's smtp-failure logs?
