[Mailman-Users] smtp-failure.log / diagnosing delivery to only some subscribers

Thank you all for your replies.

I queried my MTA log for the message ID and only came up with 8 out of 66
addresses. These were logged as sent.  I assumed that the
bounces/undeliverables would also show up with the same message ID. Am I
mistaken? Am I not looking for the right info in the MTA log?
