Every time a message is sent to your list, Mailman keeps track of the recipients that bounced the message back because the recipient does exist, or the recipient is over quoto, or the recipient is sending a vacation message, etc. Once Mailman receives about 5 bounces over a period of a single week (Mailman's method is actually much more complex - this is an approximation), Mailman will automatically disable the account.
