At a quick glance it doesn't look like it would be all too terribly
difficult to change. When I was using Mhonarc for the archives on
one of my lists (before moving to Mailman last spring), I had a
script that would change "user at domain.com" to" user at ...". If I
recall, it simply used a regex that looked for characters followed by
an @ followed by more characters. It then replaced everything from
the @ to the next space with "...".
It appears that the code which does the obfuscation is in
($prefix)/Mailman/Mailman/Archiver/HyperArch.py between lines 280 and
290 in 2.1.11. (I'm sure someone will correct me if that's wrong info)
