	You could turn on full personalization, but that does some other 
things you may not like.  Among other things, it destroys information 
about what other recipients were listed where on the original 
recipient headers.

	Also available through personalization.  You just have to modify 
the template.

	Also note the RFC 2142 headers that Mailman will include by 
default on each and every message that is sent through the system. 
For example, the mailman-users mailing lists includes the following 
headers with every message sent:

List-Id: Mailman mailing list management users <mailman-users.python.org>
List-Unsubscribe: <http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/mailman-users>,
	<mailto:mailman-users-request at python.org?subject=unsubscribe>
List-Archive: <http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users>
List-Post: <mailto:mailman-users at python.org>
List-Help: <mailto:mailman-users-request at python.org?subject=help>
List-Subscribe: <http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/mailman-users>,
	<mailto:mailman-users-request at python.org?subject=subscribe>

	Depending on the recipients MUA, they should be able to click on 
the appropriate link and have their system "Do The Right Thing".

	I would encourage you to go to the Mailman FAQ Wizard at 
<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py> and read all the entries 
that discuss personalization.
