I think the suggestion is to put the recipient's address in the To: line, and
to put the list name in Sender: or X-List-Name: or something like that for
people who use filtering rules to sort list mail into separate mailboxes.
I really like the idea of putting the receipient's name in the To: line.
Even though I use VERP to put a unique envelope return address on each
message sent out to my lists, and that works quite well for bounce pruning, I
get plenty of both manual and automatic bounces where the envelope and most
of the header lines are all gone or smashed beyond recognition. It's rare to
lose the To: line, which means that I can figure out what address to take off
