You will not see any personalize settings or documentation of
additional replacements in the web UI because those all depend on
replacements are:

    user_address - The address of the user, coerced to lower case.
    user_delivered_to - The case-preserved address that the user is
subscribed with.
    user_password - The user's password.
    user_name - The user's full name.
    user_optionsurl - The url to the user's option page.

and if you have set the list's personalize attribute to 1 or 2, and you
include any of those replacements in the list's msg_header or
msg_footer, they should be replaced appropriately in the delivered

For example, you *could* put the following in msg_footer. This is
*definitely not recommended* because despite the warning, users will
leave this in replies and forwards, but ...

Instant Unsubscribe - Warning! remove this link before replying or
forwarding this message.
