I would assume that there must be some common header or body
lines that could be used to filter on, and once matched, parse
the body for the listname and bouncing address. Autobounce
used to do this well, and some other list managers have this
capability built in (smartlist, MJ2, listserv). I am hoping
someone has a stand-alone utility to do this for majordomo.
