Correct. Install GNU Mailman from ports, and set the anonymous_list
option when setting up your list. But see also the caveat from the docs:


          This variable allows you to turn on some simple anonymizing
          features of Mailman. When you set this option to Yes, Mailman
          will remove or replace the From:, Sender:, and Reply-To:
          fields of any message posted to the list.
