The mailing list actually does allow anonymous posts to a degree. The From header does not have to match the Envelope FROM and can be whatever one desires, including a bogus address. All that matters to the mailing list software is that the Envelope FROM matches what's in the MLM database. I exploit this feature by making my From different from the email address that is actually subscribed to the mailing list; notice that here my actual subscriber email address is never exposed: https://marc.info/?l=fossil-users&m=153400926421821&w=2 If I had wanted, I could have put entirely bogus information in the From and the MLM would still send the email as long as the Envelope FROM is correct---only the MLM owner knows my Envelope From and it is not exposed to anyone.
