Essentially what you could do is not use Yahoo for mailing lists...
More specifically, do not have a "yahoo.com" address in the "From"
field of any emails you send to mailing lists.
That effectively would mean creating an account somewhere else for
sending to the list, though you could still read the messages
from another account.

Apart from that I am afraid not, unless you can convince Yahoo to fix this...
The "suggested" method by some is to kick Yahoo users of lists,
which has obvious issues... (not that I'd mind people stop
using Yahoo).
The alternative is to mangle "From:" headers from Yahoo users.
Which means replying privately to them will become somewhat
of a pain.
There seems to be no real third option.
I will probably look into the second one, but it's a bit much
effort for my free time which I'd rather spend on something
useful like improving MPlayer...
