[Mailman-Users] Editing the from address on mailman autoresponse

I'm running mailman-2.1.4-83.4 on a SuSE linux server and connecting to 
view mail using both  Squirrelmail and Thunderbird.

I've set up a mailing list (job2 at aurora.qrc.com) for our HR dept. that 
needs to send out an auto-response for every post.  However, the 
auto-response goes out as from jobs2-bounces at aurora.qrc.com.

Ignoring the fact that since the message was delivered, this tagging makes 
no sense, I need to, at least for this particular list, not have the 
'-bounces' added.

Is there a way to accomplish this?

I have found the hack at 
http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq02.003.htp but it 
seems to apply to Outloook client which I refuse to use.  (I tried it 
anyway and it did not change the behavior.)

The only other item in the FAQ relating to autoresponders is about users 
with broken ones not problems with Mailman's.

I have also looked thru the archives but have not found anything that applies.
