If you have bounce_notify_owner_on_disable set to Yes, the disable
notice will contain a copy of the triggering bounce, but other than
that, the actual bounce messages are not available in Mailman so if
you want to see them all, copying the list's bounces address to
yourself is what you need to do. Either that or hack the code to do a
"forward every bounce" function.

Note however that some bounces will be reported by your own outgoing
MTA and information about those will be in the MTA logs.
