I'm assuming this is an anonymous list (anonymous_list = Yes) so the
From: is replaced with the list address.

If this is the case and the list has a description (A terse phrase
identifying this list.) , e.g. My List, the from will look like

From: My List <mylist at mydomain.com>

in recent versions of Mailman (2.1.6 and above).
