I don't know what Thunderbird you're using , but both Thunderbird and 3.0a1 (two that I happen to have immediate access to)
show the From: and Sender: separately and intact as received.

The envelope must be from the listname-bounces address if automated
bounce processing is going to work. In addition the Sender: header is
set to the same address because some non-compliant MTAs return bounces
to the Sender:. The FAQ
has some discussion of this and also indicates where in the Mailman
code you might change it.
