He's not going to see the bounces, so how's he going to do that?

If the list's bounce_processing is set to No, no further processing of
bounces will be done for that list, but members whose delivery has
already been disabled by bounce processing will continue to get their
periodic notices sent and will be removed after exhausting notices
unless their delivery is manually re-enabled by the user or the admin
in the interim.
