Mailman 2.1.20 is being used for the mailing list for an open-source
project.  There are 522 members.

Whenever anyone posts to this list, somebody (presumable one of the
522 subscribers) is capturing the sender email and the subject line
and sending multiple porn-spam replies to the sender from an off-list
email address.  The question:  How to figure out which of the 522
subscribers is doing this so that they can be ejected from the list?

I tried making the list anonymous, but that was met with howls of
protest from the legitimate list members.  That is not a viable

It would be great if there were some way to send a message where the
>From field of each recipient was slightly different, and different in
a way that was traceable back to the list member.  That would allow me
to identify the leaker.

Other suggestions?
