I take it you are referring to the From: header. It doesn't have
anything to do with your post, your connection, or your ISP. It's the
way the list is set up. Since you don't want bounces coming back to the
entire list community, the list server sets the From field to be that
address you see. That keeps me and you and everyone else from seeing
that Fred Bloggs is on vacation, that John Smith's mailbox is full,
etc., etc., etc.

Yes, but the list server does not usually do this.

Your post, for instance, shows up as From you.

My post did not show up as From me, and has the reference "On behalf of" me.

All previous post from me have had the From line showing as my address.

So why is this happening? I did not set any vacation settings, did
not have a full mailbox, etc.
