Why are bounces coming to you? Are they 'unrecognized' by Mailman?

Does the bounce contain the headers of the original message from
Mailman? If so, look for X-BeenThere: and Received: headers to be sure
the message is coming from the list you think it is.

It is also possible that the address that is bouncing is a forward from
another member address.
