How to set an announcement list to reply to a contact address: 

  Go to the General options and scroll down to Reply-To munging.
  Turn on first_strip_reply_to and set reply_goes_to_list to Explicit
  Address.  Set reply_to_address to band at dom.ain.  This way anyone
  following up to an announcement will send the message to your band
  contact address.  If your newsletters are likely to be widely
  forwarded on, you may want to use a special contact address for
  this purpose, one you can change from time to time when the address
  starts receiving a lot of spam.
  Scroll down on the General options and set include_list_post_header
  to No, but leave include_rfc2369_headers to Yes.
