In fact you don't even need a send-only account to do what you want.
You just need to filter incoming mails from your account, matching "a
list" to be copied into "a folder" (which you already have probably),
and in this folder's properties (in Compose), set the default account
to be "your account" and set your "address with the code embedded" in
the From field of the compose/reply/forward templates.

The alternate way using a send-only account would be:

1. Configure your "normal" receive/send account.
2. Configure your new send-only (SMTP) account w/ the exact same
information as set in the normal account but the email address contains
"the code embedded".
3. Configure filtering rules at least so that mails received with your
normal account, from "a list", land into a specific folder.
4. In the properties of that list folder, set the default account to be
your send-only account. No need to play w/ templates.

BTW, is "the code embedded" like the normalized email alias address,
like "dave+code at ..." ?
