We recently set up an announcement mailing list (MM 2.1.18) for a local
music non-profit organization for which my wife is the treasurer, and at
this point the sole authorized (un-moderated) poster to the list.

She wants to be able to post completely anonymously, and so we've set
the list up as an anonymous list, with the Reply-To address of the

MM duly posted her first post to the list, and all the required headers
are fine and as expected, but her original post to the list had the
Organization header set to the name of her bookkeeping business, and
this was preserved in the distributed announcement.

Is there, and if not, shouldn't there be a way to _completely_ anonymize
a post to a list?  There should be some way to have MM remove the
Organization header and replace it with an arbitrary one, in this case
the name of the organization on behalf of which the announcement was

Granted, she could set up a special account, w.o. an organization name
for posting to the list, or temporarily remove this from her account
profile, but she may have others posting to this list as well, and there
needs to be some way of dealing with this on a general basis.
