If the user's were disabled by bounce processing, there would be [B]
for the reason next to the check in the 'nomail' column in the web
admin Membership List pages.

There will be more information in Mailman's 'bounce' log. Also, if the
notifications are turned on on the web admin Bounce processing, the
list owner should have received a notice for each member whose
delivery was disabled by bounce containing the triggering bounce
notice (DSN).

See <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/reset_bounce.py> (mirrored at
<http://fog.ccsf.edu/~msapiro/scripts/reset_bounce.py>) for a script
to mass re-enable the bounce disabled member deliveries.
