Just had a chance to look at this...
this header is correct.
From: mailman-owner at newboy.plaidworks.com
These headers are arguably incorrect, because they refer to a list,
not the server. Since we aren't sending this out from a list,
attaching them to a list is incorrect. Or, it *might* be correct if
the user is subscribed to a single list, but it's really not what
ought to happen in the general case.
Return-Path: <test-admin at newboy.plaidworks.com>
Sender: test-admin at newboy.plaidworks.com
Errors-To: test-admin at newboy.plaidworks.com
X-BeenThere: test at newboy.plaidworks.com
List-Id: this is a test. This is only a test. <test.newboy.plaidworks.com>
Instead, I recommend:
Return-Path: <mailman-owner at newboy.plaidworks.com>
Sender: mailman-owner at newboy.plaidworks.com
Errors-To: mailman-owner at newboy.plaidworks.com
X-BeenThere: mailman at newboy.plaidworks.com
On the other hand, this probably breaks bounce processing (although
I'm not sure if this message is properly handled by bounce
processing, anyway. But this monthly reminder can be a key way ot
cleaning up mail lists without VERP if it's used properly...)

And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
and say 'Man, what are you doing here?'"
