Click on Privacy Options.

The bottom option is "Hide sender of message".  If this is "No" then
each message will show who sent it.  If you set this to "Yes" then it
will just show a generic admin address as the sender.

To have replies go to all list recipients instead of just the sender go
to General Options and go to the setting called "Where are replies to
list messages directed".  Set this to "This List".

Note that if you set replies to the list you should make sure all
members know this is the case.  It can be very bad when a reply someone
thought was going to the sender only goes to the entire list.
