Q. Can I put the user's address in the footer that Mailman adds to
A. No. The reason is that, for efficiency, Mailman batches together
message delivery for many users at once. Putting the user's
address in the footer would require Mailman to craft a unique
message for each recipient, and this would likely unacceptably bog
down your system.
