    Mailman appears to be doing something wierd. It is disabling a list member address for excessive bounces when I know for a fact that all posts were delivered.

    What I would like is for all bounces to this list to be routed to me as well as mailman so I can perhaps see what is going on.

    The way exim/mailman are implemented on a cpanel machine seems to preclude me from doing this in the obvious way in /etc/valiases and I am loathe to muck around too much in the guts of exim.conf.

    This should be simple, but I'm not seeing it.

    What brick should I be smacking myself upside the head with?

    I hacked mailman to set the envsender for the errant list to an address other than listname-bounces. This will cause all blow back to come to the alternate address rather than mailman, so I can see what is going on. I suppose I could also route the mail from that address back into the -bounces address to let mailman do its job too.

    It shouldn't be that hard.

    Surely one of the smart folks out there has a more elegant solution.
