If you set Non-digest options - personalize to Yes or Full, you can use
%(user_name)s as a replacement in msg_header and msg_footer.
Additionally, if personalize is Full, Mailman will put the recipient's
name and address in the To: header of the message.

If you don't see the personalize setting on Non-digest options, you
need to put


in mm_cfg.py to enable it.
