Full Personalization is not required for the %(user_optionsurl)s
replacement to work. If you want Full Personalization (Recipient's
email address in To: header), that's fine, but Personalization=Yes is
sufficient for the %(user_optionsurl)s replacement to work.

Whether the footer is added as a separate MIME part or is appended to
the 'body' of the mail, depends solely upon the properties of the
outgoing message. This in turn can be affected by content filtering
settings and by the scrubbing of attachments.

The footer will only be appended to the message body as opposed to
being added as a separate MIME part if the outgoing message is a
simple text/plain message. If the outgoing message is multipart or
HTML, the footer will be added as a separate part.

See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/84A9> that Brad mentioned for
some of the reasons for this.
