    The actual returned bounce notice is not kept. If you set
    bounce_notify_owner_on_disable to Yes, you will receive a copy of the
    bounce notice that results in a member disable, but not the previous
    ones that just increment the score.

    You should set bounce_score_threshold and bounce_info_stale_after to
    values appropriate for the amount of traffic on your list. The normal
    default values of 5.0 and 7 days respectively are appropriate for
    lists with posts every day, but a list with only one or two posts a
    week might do better with 2.0 and 14 days respectively.

    Thank you Mark again.

    I administrative some lists in an Linux RH8 with mailman-2.1.1-5 ver.
    It seems to be problem with one of the lists with only 10 "users". The
    most of them sudenly doesnot recieve mails from the list and they get a
    bounce score (1 or 2). The rest normally get emails.
    Is that strange? The list stop sending mails to scored users?

    bounce_score_threshold is 5 and bounce_info_stale_after is 7

    Thank you again

    bounce_score_threshold is 5 and bounce_info_stale_after is 7
    If they are getting a "bounce score" in the bounce log, it means the
    list IS sending and the messages are bouncing. If you want to see why,
    go to the list's Bounce options page, make sure that
    bounce_notify_owner_on_disable is Yes and set bounce_score_threshold
    to 1. Then the first bounce will disable the user, and the list
    owner(s) will be sent a copy of the bounce. Then, if you feel the
    bounce is erroneous, you can raise the bounce_score_threshold and
    re-enable the user (from the Membership Management... pages).

    The above assumes that a direct e-mail to the user doesn't bounce.
