This has been discussed before and is deliberatly set in this way to
avoid list spamming. For example there are many people using Outlook
and Exchange and when they are out they tend to set the system up to
send back an "Out of Office" reply to all incoming messages. Imagine
what would happen on a list like this if the From field was set to the
list (especially during holiday seasons....).
There are other reasons as well.
