I have the same problem with my lists.
Until recently we ran on an old version of Mailman.
Users with Outlook saw messages coming from <listname>-admin at domain.net on behalf of

Now they see messages coming from <listname>-bounces at domain.net on behalf of <sender>

They understand that a mail bounce is a bad thing, and so this puzzles them.

Pretty well 99% of my users use Outlook (because that is what their employers give them).

It is small consolation to any of us that they are using an inferior mail system . . .
