It would be interesting to see what similarities are found in the DNS's of
the domains that are getting the bounces and the mail servers running the
mail.  Authentication, etc.  I don't want to accuse anyone of having an
improperly configured set up, but in my experience this is where I'd look
first.  I used to have the too many bounces problem until I fixed my DNS
many years ago.   Forget now what I did, but I run my own stuff, it's
possible to still have a roll your own DNS and mail server if you have a
mechanism for tracing everything. It should be pretty easy to find the
problem if you can.  Who knows if that's possible, some may be bouncing on
a public server that is too opaque to trace.
