On further reading, MIT recommends using their SMTP server to send email
from their domain. Is there any particular reason that's objectionable?
With the use of SPF, this seems aimed at preventing anyone from sending
email from you without having your username and password.

To do so, you will need to open your email client and specify outgoing-alum.mit.edu as your SMTP (or outgoing) mail server. Typically the SMTP server information can be found in your email client under menu items called Options, Preferences, or Tools. You should use port 465 (SSL) or 587 (TLS). Please note that your Infinite Connection username and password are required for SMTP server authentication. You will also need to configure your email client so that your alum.mit.edu address is specified as the From address.

Fixing the envelope from to match your server as I suggested before may
still work - messages delivered through the list work fine and they
still have "header.from=alum.mit.edu", but it validates the
"mtp.mailfrom=tz-bounces at iana.org" instead. It does seem to be checking
something called "has-list-id=yes" though, so it's unclear.
