No, I only need (mass) invitation, adding new (mass) subscription (and
password reminder) send on behalf list-owner at domain.com while the rest I
let Mailman bounce handler to handle the job.
Base on my experience on old Ecartis, there are a lot of occasion the
the new member <address> are not valid either because the person who
inform him/her are not correct or the list-owner made typo.
I know that sooner or later non-valid member will be automatically
unsubcribe by Mailman bounce handler, but if list-owner known first they
can make correction as soon as possible.
This kind of features will help to make my Mailman more efficient while
using my limited resources.

I am not programmer, I would prefer other workaround (if any) :-)

I have made/add recipient_bcc_map to handle all mail address to
listname-bounce at domain.com always bcc: to listname-owner at domain.com, but
apparently this setting not working as expected when the receiver MTA
reject the message on smtp level.
