Just as a point of clarification, you may wonder why I seem to be
minimizing the importance of discernable e-mail addresses in Received:
headers when I'm the one who raised the issue in the first place.

Originally, I thought you wanted to hide e-mail addresses from other
list members to avoid them sending off-list flames, etc. This is a
different issue from spam harvesting.

The more I think of this though, the more I think it would be
appropriate for Mailman to drop the incoming Received: headers from
posts to an anonymous list. Why preserve the trace of how a post got
from source to list when you want to make the source anonymous?
