I meant to say "all the user's subscriptions", not "all the users
subscriptions". I.e. if I'm subscribed to four lists at the site, I
get one reminder with all four passwords. Obviously, this can't come
from all four <list>-owner addresses so it comes from the site list.

This could be changed, but it may significantly increase the number of
notices to send one per subscription instead of one per user depending
on how many subscriptions the typical user has at your site.

Brad has already posted how you could request this change if you can't
do it yourself, and it may be a worthwhile option.
