If you have root privileges on the Exim server in question, I rather
doubt this: there are very few things that Exim won't let you do, given
enough time grovelling through the manual.  Also, if you're a trusted
users to that Exim server, you can get away with a lot more
(eg. supplying an enveloper sender with "exim -f").

Have you tried using an MUA (eg. mutt) that lets you set the "Sender"
header yourself?

If all else fails, what about resubscribing to the Mailman list as the
address that you're stuck with using?
