It means that posts from the lis to members are not personalized so the


setting has no effect on this list. It has no effect/relation to the
other 3 settings.

It means that every post and every message to a LIST-owner will be
verped regardless of other settings.

It has nothing to do with VERP_PERSONALIZED_DELIVERIES. It means that
when a user's bounce score reaches the threshold, the score will be
reset and a VERPed probe message will be sent and the user's delivery
will be disabled only if the probe bounces.  If you set this to Yes
and there is some MTA issue preventing correct delivery of VERPed
bounces, users will never be disabled by bounce which is why the
default is No.
