    Go on, have a guess
    Haven't tried it, but you could try adding to the end of /etc/aliases

    mailer-daemon: you@yourdomain.com

    I'm not sure if you found out about this yet, but I think if you go into your web host manager, then click on "change system mail settings" under the "server setup" and change the "nobody's mail" and the "mailman's mail" that should send the bounced message to that address.

    This is according to the note at the bottom of that screen:

    PHP:
    Notes:

        * 
    root generally gets email about problems on the server, and normal server activity.
        * 
    nobody recieves bounce message from email sent via cgi scripts if you are not using suexec.
        * 
    mailman generally recives only bounce messages from the mailman list software.
