    Default Setting a Distribution Lists return email address

    I'm trying to create a distribution list where the reply address is a list admin and not the original sender. This way, if there are any errors in the list, the bounces would go to a list admin (who has rights to modify the list) and not the original email sender.
    In the old Sendmail days, this would be something like:
    emaillist::include:/emaillist.txt
    emaillist-request: listadmin@example.com
    owner-emaillist: emaillist-request

    I'm hoping to find a way to manage this via the admin GUI (ZCS 7.2 NE) and not a zmprov command and especially not hacking postfix files (though I will if I must, I'm hoping it won't come to that )

    Edit: actually, I don't want to change a Reply-To: address, rather, I want to change the envelope From address.
    In looking at the raw headers, I want something like:
    From DistributionList-request@example.com
    From: real_user@example.com
    To: DistributionList@example.com

    That is, if real_user@example.com sends mail to DistributionList@example.com anyone on the list would see the above headers. That way, if there is an error on the list, it would net be sent back to real_user@example.com, but rather the person(s) listed in DistributionList-request@example.com

    Thanks!
    Tom
