I think the last 4 settings in the cPanel installation "Bounce processing Section" should all be set to YES
Should Mailman send you, the list owner, any bounce messages that failed to be detected by the bounce processor? Yes is recommended.
(Details for bounce_unrecognized_goes_to_list_owner)
Should Mailman notify you, the list owner, when bounces cause a member's bounce score to be incremented?
(Details for bounce_notify_owner_on_bounce_increment)
Should Mailman notify you, the list owner, when bounces cause a member's subscription to be disabled?
(Details for bounce_notify_owner_on_disable)
Should Mailman notify you, the list owner, when bounces cause a member to be unsubscribed?
(Details for bounce_notify_owner_on_removal)
Depending on the possibilities your provider offers, I would imagine that it could be possible that you receive a copy of the bounce messages into your personal mailbox.
