That depends on what you mean by alter. If you mean configuration
setting, then no. If you mean by patching source code, then yes, you
can patch Mailman/Handlers/CookHeaders.py to not add the list address
to Cc: for fully personalized lists.

You can also change or omit the Sender: and Errors-To: headers in
Mailman/Handlers/SMTPDirect.py, See the FAQ at

Note that you can also change the actual envelope sender, but if you
do, automated bounce processing will not work.
