Was your old version 2.0.x. If so, 2.1.x is much different. If this is
a general question, see <http://wiki.list.org/x/RoA9>.

If you are talking specifically about the "results of your email
commands" message that is sent to the user when unsubscribe requires
owner approval, you raise a good point about this coming From:
list-owner rather than list-bounces, but changing this requires
changing the code in Mailman/Queue/CommandRunner.py, and the
straightforward way to do it would make all responses to email
commands be From: the list-owner. This may not be a bad thing, but I'm
not sure.

What do people think about having all "results of your email commands"
messages come From: list-owner instead of list-bounces? The envelope
would still be from list-bounces for bounce processing.

Note that in response to an earlier thread
I already changed the rejected post message to be From: list-owner
