I did a test and saw my own address in the header.  However, in trying to 
explain to the user over the phone that she could see the addressed 
subscribed, she swore it wasn't there.  So I took her word for 
it.  However, I believe if she was showing full headers, it probably would 
have been there.

I like the suggestion to personalize the footer.  I'm going to do that so 
it'll say what address is subscribed.

Thanks for everyone's help!
