I wanted to do that too, but had to learn then, that our local student
smtp-server allows only from adresses from the local student domain.
Of course it also isn't possible to use another smtp-server...

Fortunately I can ssh out to another box and do smtp from there, but
thats not possible for everyone.

That said, it realy doesn't apply to this list, as the only one who
has to send things here is the archive maintenance software as Josip
Rodin pointed out in another mail.
