[Mailman-Users] Header Info on monthly password reminders

I believe you are asking the same question that Graham Dunn is asking in 
the attached email that he sent earlier today, which is also the same 
question I've been asking for quite some time, which is:

Why do the monthly mailings get sent from the admin of the first list that 
got created after mailman was installed rather than the global mailman

Subject: [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?
