I don't understand why there is no 'real name' (from the list's
description) in the From: address of the list at rockhoundsoftball.com

I also don't understand why one list would get the "(sent by
list-bounces at rockhoundsoftball.com)" added and the other not, but
mailman is not adding this to either list's posts. Both list's posts
are sent by the corresponding -bounces address and contain Sender: and
Errors-To: headers with the -bounces address.

Sometimes outgoing MTAs rewrite From: headers if the domain in From: is
a CNAME, but I looked at your DNS entries and that is not the case here

I don't understand just where this From: is getting munged and what is
causing it and why it happens only to one list, but I'm sure it is not
Mailman that's doing it.

Are these two domains treated differently by the outgoing MTA?
