AFAICS, you lose, then.  Specifically, if you obfuscate the sender,
you are probably in violation of the AUP for the relay service you
are using.

Have you tried working directly with Amazon SES to resolve the issue?

I wonder if a third possibility, namely encapsulating every message in
another message sent by Mailman, would do the trick.  Ie, require all
subscribers to subscribe to the digest edition of the list.
