I'll be darned if I know! I have searched high and low, trying to rediscover 
just how I did it, but I believe that I set it up when I registered my email 
account on the mailing list. 

You might have to remove your email address from the list, then add it to the 
list again, but make the "reply-to" address the user-list address:
(Out of all possibilities, this seems most likely. Maybe others will know 

Also I created an email template just for the list (as well as for other 
regular correspondents), so whenever I create a new email, I click on the 
template rather than "new email"; when I reply, of course, it uses my 
previous settings. 

However, others have mentioned getting duplicate emails from my address, when 
a mistake such as hitting send twice, or resending, wasn't possible; so I am 
not entirely confident that my email doesn't sometimes show up. 

It would be nice to be able to reproduce my results, so that everybody here 
can hide their email addresses.
