Public bug reported:
The from_is_list feature creates a new From: header of the form
From: realname via lists_real_name <list_posting_address>
where realname is the display name from the posters From:. If the
poster's From: has no display name, this string is null. It should
contain at least the local part of the poster's From: address in this
It probably should not contain the domain part because this will result
From: "user at example.com via The_list" <the_list at example.net>
and the presence of two different domain names in the From: header, even
if one is in the display name, is said to be an indication of spaminess,
so we should make this
From: "user--- via The_list" <the_list at example.net>
