That's why personalization is a good idea.  For example, you'll note
that mailman-users is personalized - every message has a footer that
tells you what the address is.

The user may be able to figure it out from the headers but my guess is
that if they can't remmeber what address they used, and they forward
from address to address, they're unlikely to have the skills necessary
to look at the headers.
