This isn't standard Mailman however, I had to modify
By default 'obscure' just replaces @ with ' at ' in addresses and turns
them into mailto:s pointing to the list.

Here's a patch that does Yahoo! style munging instead:

You'll also want to configure your web server to deny access to the
'listname.mbox' files that HyperArch leaves around since they've still got
unmunged addresses in them.
