Is this your Mailman installation or Dreamhost's?

The envelope sender is listname-bounces so automated bounce processing
can work. If you change this (assuming you can - it requires patching
Mailman), bounces will be returned to the list.

Mailman also sets the Sender: header to listname-bounces. You can
probably change this without affecting bounce processing except for
some non-compliant MTAs, but this too requires patching.
