I have a script which sits as a wrapper around the /usr/sbin/sendmail interface that takes care of it all for me. I have a simple ``database'' of recipient addresses and what the expected From and Envelope From addresses should be and when the script is invoked, it parses the mess822 headers out and rewrites them according to the rules. In the case of Fossil Users, I have an instruction that causes the Envelope From to be my subscriber address found in the mailing list database, and the From to be a timestamped email address that expires after 30 days. The mailing list permits the message because it finds my subscription via the Envelope From and permits it to be delivered. The From address can be harvested and will only be useful for 30 days which allows individuals to respond directly to my emails if they want without undergoing any spam blocking. Arguably, this script belongs in the MUA and while I use an MUA that is highly extensible, I've never bothered to take the time to figure out how to make it work there. :-) If you look closely, and if gmail permits it (because it lamely suppresses things that it thinks are duplicate messages), you'll see two different email addresses based on which email you receive---the one that gets used when I send directly to you, and the one that arrives in the mailing list delivered email.
