Mailman does not edit or process substitutions in message body text.
The best you can do is make sure the list is personalized and specify
a msg_header such as

Hello %(user_name)s,

and filter content or otherwise ensure that delivered messages are
single part text/plain so the header is added to the body and not as a
separate MIME part. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/84A9>.
