Ask Bjorn Hansen's mailing list software, cnntp, does this. e.g.
here's the headers from a recent p5p mail:
Mailing-list: contact perl5-porters-help at perl.org; run by ezmlm
List-help: <mailto:perl5-porters-help at perl.org>
List-unsubscribe: <mailto:perl5-porters-unsubscribe at perl.org>
List-post: <mailto:perl5-porters at perl.org>
see http://www.nntp.perl.org/about/ .
me, I'd like to add RSS/Atom feeds to the wishlist. ;)
