I have yet another functionality question. If I subscribe a bad email

change this behavior?
The welcome message like all list mail is sent with envelope from (and
Sender: and Errors-To:) the listname-bounces address for automated
If you want bounces to go to the owner instead you can redirect the
listname-bounces address to listname-owner in the MTA.
You can also adjust bounce processing settings so the first bounce
causes a disable and the owner is notified.
If this is only an occasional thing, you could check Mailman's bounce
log or the user's options page after subscribing a user to see if a
bounce was recorded (it may take up to 15 minutes after the bounce is
received for it to be recorded).
