The Sender: is set to the listname-bounces address for automated bounce
processing to accommodate broken MUAs that return bounces to Sender:
instead of the envelope sender. See

for more on this.

You can set anonymous_list to Yes which will replace the From: with

From: description 

where description is the text in the list's description attribute and
list at example.com is the list address.
