If you have files in Mailman's data/ directory named
bounce-events-ppppp.pck the only one, if any, that's useful is one with
a current time stamp and ppppp = to the pid of the currently running
BounceRunner. Any others are orphaned and can safely be removed.

As for archives, see <https://www.msapiro.net/scripts/prune_arch>
(mirrored at <https://fog.ccsf.edu/~msapiro/scripts/prune_arch>), or if
you really don't want archives for a list, you can set the lists
Archiving Options -> archive to No and just remove
archives/private/LISTNAME/ and archives/private/LISTNAME.mbox/.
