One problem we always have with mailing lists is that people forget which
email address they used to subscribe. Often our subscribers have email
aliases that they use. For example: a user subscribes to our mailing list as
info at their_domain.com. This address is setup to forward mail to their "real"
email address: user at aol.com. 
So now they get a mailing from Mailman at user at aol.com. They reply that they
want to unsubscribe, and cannot, since user at aol.com is not a member of the
To help combat this I would like to add their %(email)s variable to the
msg_footer. I'd like to say something like: "You are subscribed to this list
as %(email)s". But that variable is not allowed there.
Can you suggest another solution??
