No. The anonymous list feature is designed to remove all information
that could identify the sender.

All list posts are sent with the envelope from and the Sender: header
equal to the LISTNAME-bounces at ... address. I'm sure it depends on the

From: in a Reply-To:, you can do that with a custom handler. See
