That's exactly the envelope sender address that should be used for 
sending the messages.  Otherwise, all bounces would come in to the 
list and be redistributed to all the other recipients, which would 
cause another set of bounces, ad infinitum.

I suggest you read the Mailman documentation and FAQ.
