Another is to use an email client that can adust your from header address
based on the recipient list. For example mutt has hooks that can do this
(and a lot of other stuff). I think I have heard gmail has a feature that 
does something like this as well.

The simplest is to set the email address (but probably not the comment part
used for a name) to be the list address. You still want your envelope sender
address to be the address you are subscribed under.
