With respect to performance, there is no difference between personalize
Yes and Full. In either case, each subscriber receives an
individualized message (whether or not the messages are in fact
different). The performance hit is in sending a separate message to
each recipient via a separate SMTP transaction. The actual content of
the message and the To: header doesn't matter.
