[Mailman-Users] A few minor questions

    Since I decided (probably foolishly) to jump into the headers 
debate, now's probably a good time to end my lurking and ask a couple 
of questions that have been nagging at me.

1) Is it possible to include the subscriber's address in the list's 
footer when using the Web interface?  (That is, no source edits or 
command-line options are possible for me.)  For example, I'd like to 
add a line something like "You are subscribed to the list as 
'eric at meyerweb.com'.  I haven't found any documentation of such an 

2) Is there a way to offer users, via the Web-based interface, the 
ability to choose whether or not their Reply-To header gets munged? 
I suspect not, but if there's an option variable I can address via 
the options form, I'll be more than happy to hack the HTML to include 
that option.  Having that as an option would let users decide for 
themselves whether or not they consider munging harmful or useful, 
and act accordingly.

3) Similarly, is there a way in the Web-based options interface to 
let users choose whether or not the list's name is prefixed in the 
Subject line?  Some subscribers filter on the list address, but 
others prefer subject-line filters so that offlist correspondence is 
dumped in the same folder (which I find weird, but that's me).  A few 
people have asked if there's a way to set this as an account option, 
and I couldn't find one, so I thought I'd ask you folks.

    And if any of these are answered in the FAQ, could someone give me 
a keyword or two on which to search?  My searches of the FAQ have 
come up dry so far.  Thanks!
