    There's not really much you can do. These are bounces that came
    back to the mailing list system, but they are not in one of the
    formats that Mailman has been programmed to deal with.

    If you're getting a whole lot of them, you could find out what
    the format (or formats) is/are and how to properly deal with them.
    Then, you could contribute to Mailman either Python code to handle
    the situation, or at least the knowledge to the group in the hopes
    that someone else will be able to write the Python code in question.

    Failing that, you can set the option the Bounce processing page to not
    send these notices to the list owner. I'm not sure I'd want to do
    that, but if you get nothing but spam as uncaught bounces, it might be
    the best option you have.

    The msgs are invariably about big boobs and viagra...

    Wonder if this msg will get filtered out because of that line...

    I get a lot of spam coming to some of my lists bounce address too. I
    hacked the BounceRunner to consult the KNOWN_SPAMMERS variable and
    that helps cut down on it a bit. I'm still not sure if there are ways
    that could cause problems for me or not, but it hasn't seemed to so
    far.

    I seem to recall a suggestion that the spam filter (version 2.1.4 and
    up) could be used to discard these. Guess I need to learn how to do the
    regexp thing - can anyone point me to a decent how to for that?
