If bounce_processing is Yes and bounce_notify_owner_on_disable is Yes, the
bounce that causes the user's bounce score to reach the threshold and
disables delivery will be attached to the notice to the admin. Other
bounces simply increment the user's bounce score, and that fact is logged
in Mailman's bounce log, but the bounce message itself is neither saved
nor reported. This has always been the case in standard Mailman 2.1.x.
