It depends on your email client, but you should usually not see the
`Sender' header.

The full(er) story: Messages are always sent with the original `From'
so you can see who sent it originally, but the list server adds its
own `Sender' which indicates who is actually doing the sending -- and
that's the mailing list server itself, and not the original person.
In addition, mailman uses "-bounce" in the email address so it can
reliably identify bad addresses (since they'll bounce back to that
"-bounce" email).
