    Forgive me if this is the wrong group, but I already posted this on
    the "sendmail" group and never got any response.

    I have an "announcements" type mail list set up in majordomo. I
    configured the list with a "restrict_post" setting, which points to a
    file of email addresses which are authorized to send mail to the
    list. (In case it matters, this file of "authorized senders" is small
    and seldom changes.)

    The list is basically working, except that when an authorized sender
    sends a mail to the list, the "From" header shows the real address of
    the sender. I would rather the "From" header be a generic "list
    owner" address, no matter who actually sends the mail. How can I do
    this?

    That would be because Majordomo is not sendmail. It relies on it, but
    that would be the wrong group.
