"This is a private list, which means that the list of members is not available
to non-members."

OTOH, as soon as you send email out, the return address is public, at least in
some form or another.  You are at the mercy of everyone who receives the
message, since a virus or malware can scan the inbox of anyone who has received
your message.

The address appear at least somewhat munged,  although it certainly would be
nice if the archive software could do more munging.
