[Mailman-Users] Changing "From" Field

Hi Richard,

There really is no technical aspect to this. The manager for this list
thinks the address "Workshop_Information-admin at domain.com"  looks to
confusing, and would prefer that 
address reads Workshop_Information at domain.com. 

I know each list needs at least three separate addresses and I'm pretty sure
I can't combine two of them together, however, I was thinking maybe there
was a way I could 'mask' the address of the sender with a phony address, but
I'm not sure how to go about doing that. Plus, this is something I would
have to do for 10 or more lists. Any ideas?

Is this so that bounce messages for failed deliveries can be 
distributed to the rest of the list subscribers?

/etc/aliases is about delivery not constructing outbound messages; 
changing it will not achieve what you think you want.
