I am interested in this option as well. Here is a scenario: When people send a message to the group and don't sign their name, I want their name to be picked from the membership list and mentioned at the top of the body as From: <name of the member> It will follow with their message in the body of the email.
This is not possible to do reliably in email due to the control of the relevant information by email authors.
Just wondering... I can see that the above would be true in the case of lists that allow anybody to post. But is it true even in the case of lists that can only be posted to by subscribers?
(Well, I guess that Subscriber A could spoof their message as being from Subscriber B. But barring pathological cases like that, presumably Mailman can match the sender's email address against the subscriber list and find the value of the corresponding name field.)
Assumes that the corresponding name field is not empty...
