I think what you are asking is specific to MHonArc. 
 Mailman only calls MHonArc as an external archiver and 
then Mailman assumes that external archiver knows what it 
is doing.

I believe what you are looking for is called "SPAMMODE" in 

"SPAMMODE determines if MHonArc will perform actions to 
deter spam address harvesters. If SPAMMODE is true, it 
changes the default values of various resources that 
display email addresses."

I don't know the specifics of enabling this in MHonArc as 
I have just started looking at this myself.  You will want 
to take a look at the MHonArc site for specifics,
