That is what ARC (Authenticated Received Chain) does. But

- it has to be supported by mail list software
- it has to be supported by each recipient mail server (so it is out
of control of mail list software)
- recipient server needs to trust mail list server before it can
accept this information

The latter especially looks problematic on a large scale ...
