There are things in hypermail that may be of use now. This is from running a "hypermail -v > tmp.rc".

# replace any _at_ sign with this string, if spam flags enabled antispam_at = _at_

# Set this to On to make hypermail not output real email addresses
# in the output HTML but instead it will obfuscate them a little.
# You can control the obfuscation with set_antispamdomain.
spamprotect = Off
# By default hypermail only does a small amount of massaging
# of email addresses. Use this to completely replace the domain
# from which a message originates (everything after the _at_)
# with some string to confuse screen-scraping programs.
# It is probably wise to make this an invalid mail domain.
antispamdomain =
# Set this to On to make hypermail not output real email message
# ids in HTML comments (sometimes used internally by hypermail) but
# instead it will obfuscate them a little so they don't look like
# email addresses to spammers.

spamprotect_id = Off

If these don't fit your needs please let me know.
