Look in the $prefix/data directory at a file named sitelist.cfg
This documents the "personalization" option.

The best way I've found to set this is as follows:

In the $prefix directory:

    This creates a file that contains [almost] all current configuration.
    bin/config_list -o data/YourListName.cfg YourListName

    Then edit data/YourListName.cfg and on the end, add:

# Personalization option.  See sitelist.cfg for documentation.
# legal values are:
#    0 = "No"
#    1 = "Yes"
#    2 = "Full Personalization"
personalize = 2

    Then install your modified option file:
    bin/config_list -i data/YourListName.cfg YourListName

This should result in the "To: " header having the recipient's address
instead of the list's address.
