This is pretty well handled by having messages posted to the list by 
non-list-members bounced to the admin.  However, there are still a good 
number of bounces by people whos addresses have changed slightly 
(user @
 host1 .
 dom .
 ain vs. user @
 host2 .
 dom .
 ain), changed drastically (mail 
from the list gets forwarded from an old address), or because many 
clueless people now have root (and can make any from: address they wish, 
not that that wasn't possible before! :).
