Absolutely correct.  You can set up your email client to use
"user at fedoraproject.org" as a From: address, but it's up to your mail
provider to allow sending from it properly.  I happen to use GMail
which allows me to do this, and I have hooks set up in my Mutt client
so that when I respond to mail to my "pfrields at fp.o" address, my
response comes from that address as well.
