    When using the email list management script that came with my hosting package, the list name is shown on the to line of the email on the receiving end. They can then send email to that name (or just reply-all) and send a message to my entire list.

    How can I prevent this?

    I would like to either require some type of authentication for sending to the list, or replace the list name with the receipients name

    That depends on how it is implemented. Find out what it is, first. Majordomo and List-Serv are the two most common, though it is quite possible your ISP "rolled their own". Once you find this out, you should be able to easily check the documentation for the package.
