[Mailman-Users] Header Info on monthly password reminders

Ok, this one has about driven me to the brink of insanity! I need to know where/how the following headers are generated in the monthly password reminder message *and* how to hard-code them to something different (preferably mailman-owner).

Sender: blah-admin at blah.org
Errors-To: blah-admin at blah.org
X-BeenThere: blah at blah.org

Here's the situation. Previous to this month, Mailman (ver 2.0.1) chose to use one list as the reference for the above information. That inundated some poor, unsuspecting list owner with all kinds of stuff that didn't actually apply to her list. As a fix, we've been going in and changing the aliases of that particular list to point elsewhere at the first of the month. That worked ok (though it's a pain) until last night. For reasons unknown to me, the monthly reminder message choose to use a different list to fill in the sender/errors-to/x-beenthere info. Unfortunately, it choose a list which had no alias files setup for it (it was new and I didn't want anybody to use it yet), so we lost all the responses to that message.

Can anybody tell me how to change this permanently?
