No, that's wrong. The question was about the "From:" address. Bounces go to
the "Sender:" address. The from address has to be the person who composed
the message. The sender address is the agent that sent it to the recipient.
There is an option in the "General Options" page of the web management
utility which hides the original sender of the message. "Hide the sender of
a message, replacing it with the list address (Removes From, Sender and
Reply-To fields)". It fixes a setting called "anonymous_list".
