Are you saying you have invalid/undeliverable addresses subscribed to
your lists? I suggest you configure automated bounce processing via
each list's web admin interface Bounce processing page so that these
addresses are automatically removed.

You can also use the command line bin/config_list tool to set bounce
processing options for several lists. See the FAQ at

In order to keep invalid addresses from getting on lists in the first
place, set Privacy options... -> Subscription rules ->
subscribe_policy to Confirm and don't use mass subscribe to add
