Some MTAs can be--and frequently are--configured to reject such a From:
header, as it violates the email RFCs.  Other mail systems may accept such a
From: header but increase the message's "spamishness" because of the header.

Users who are sensitive about their addresses should be trained to use
throw-away addresses for mailing lists.  (As I am, although this one is
fresh, and I threw away the last one because of a change of direction at my
ISP, not because it was getting spammed much <yet>.)

My original address for mailing lists is now a nice honeypot--at least as
much because I used it for Usenet as for mailing lists.

Another approach which may (or may not) "take off" is to use something like
