Bug Description

From RFC 2369:

3.4. List-Post

   The List-Post field describes the method for posting to the list.
   This is typically the address of the list, but MAY be a moderator, or
   potentially some other form of submission. For the special case of a
   list that does not allow posting (e.g., an announcements list), the
   List-Post field may contain the special value "NO".

Mailman currently prevents adding the List-Post header for announce-only lists. Instead it should include it with the value of NO.
