My list owner asks:

Hormonally-induced techno-alergic reaction!!

Good question! So we want to simply zero out all the bounce counts, and
possibly the notification counts for the whole list on a one-time
basis. Will turning off bounce_processing for a day or so do this?

I've encouraged Cindy Harris, the list admin, to join this list. She's
very tech savvy and although she doesn't admin Mailman on a server, she
asks good questions and deals with list management and tech support.
I've told her that Mark, Brad, Barry et. al don't bite or act like
tech-snobs! Cindy is an accomplished musician and helps manage a small
ISP in Pennsylvania.
