1.  You should turn on personalization within Mailman to better 
understand how it works.

2.  You do understand that if you make every message different, then 
Mailman has to create 1 version of the message per subscriber.  It 
doesn't have to do this if all the messages it sends are the same; it 
just sends one copy to the MTA.

3.  If personalization doesn't do what you want, then you can 
investigate how to change the Reply-To: or CC: headers.  You don't want 
to reinvent personalization from scratch.
