That way the sending mailserver will create the bound back to the original sender (if there is one) and not you, you won't have any problems with getting blacklisted and you don't have to handle the junk mails.
That is indeed the best way to get unsubscribed from mailinglists as this
behaviour triggers bounce handling. Unless you are able to discard mails of
severity junk or lists - don't do this.
