If what you are talking about is the stuff that looks like this

>Mailman-Users mailing list
>Mailman-Users at python.org
>Mailman FAQ: http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py
>Searchable Archives: http://www.mail-archive.com/mailman-users%40python.org/

on posts from this list, it's in the administrative interface. It is
msg_footer and digest_footer found respectively on the admin
Non-digest options and Digest options pages.

It might be preferable to put <listname>-owner at ... or maybe
<site-list>-owner at ... (where <listname> and <site-list> are the actual
names) or maybe %(list_name)s-owner@%(host_name)s instead of your own
e-mail address. That way, when changes are made to owner or moderator,
the new addresses will get the mail without changing the footer again.
