[Mailman-Users] From field displayed by MS Outlook

We use Outlook 2002 and all the messages I receive (from this and our
own lists) have the from field correctly reported as the sender.  Either
something has been changed in Outlook 2003 or there is a machine
configuration problem either on the recipients machine or the senders.

I think like so many others I am effected by the from: address being
incorrectly reported in Outlook.  I am guessing since nothing has been
posted to the list this is still a current problem. I can report that
the latest version of Outlook 2003 reports:
<mailto:listname-bounces at mailman.server.com>
listname-bounces at mailman.server.com On behalf of
<mailto:name at poster.domain.com> name at poster.domain.com

I don't really want to ditch mailman but I don't have any alternative as
this is unacceptable to our customers. Any feedback on how others are
dealing with this much appreciated.
