FAQ
I've set up a number of mailman lists with dreamhost. As far as I can tell,
everything is working okay. Users are able to post messages by sending an
email to listname at domain.com but we need emails delivered from the same
address. Currently incoming emails come from listname-bounces at domain.com .

    That's exactly the envelope sender address that should be used for
    sending the messages. Otherwise, all bounces would come in to the
    list and be redistributed to all the other recipients, which would
    cause another set of bounces, ad infinitum.

    I suggest you read the Mailman documentation and FAQ.

    Is this your Mailman installation or Dreamhost's?

    The envelope sender is listname-bounces so automated bounce processing
    can work. If you change this (assuming you can - it requires patching
    Mailman), bounces will be returned to the list.

    Mailman also sets the Sender: header to listname-bounces. You can
    probably change this without affecting bounce processing except for
    some non-compliant MTAs, but this too requires patching.
