The lists are set up that way to allow for bounced messages to be 
sent back to Mailman for proper processing and not to the original 
sender (poster) of the message. I suppose you could change the MTA 
alias used to members instead of bounces but that would really serve 
no useful purpose and would obscure the fact that the address is used 
as bounce processing address.

However, it may not be as simple as just changing an alias depending 
on what MTA you are using and how Mailman is set up.

I'd really suggest just leaving it alone.
