[Mailman-Users] Adding a description to the "<listname>-bounces" address

This seems like such a simple thing that I'm sure it's described 
somewhere, but after searching the archives and Google I haven't had any 
success in finding it.

We have some Outlook users, and as this FAQ describes...


...they see the Sender info glued to the From info.

Please note:  we're perfectly happy with the <listname>-bounces address 
itself (I mention that because my searches turned up several people 
asking if it was possible to change.)

All I'd like to know is if it's possible to add a descriptive string to 
that address.  In other words, configure the Sender line to be something 

Sender:  The Interesting Example List <example-bounces at example.com>

...instead of what it apparently is now...

Sender:  example-bounces at example.com

Even just being able to insert the "description" value from the General 
Options page would help.
