It is possible to set the To: header of delivered posts to the name (if
known) and address of the recipient by setting the list's personalize
seeting to Full Personalization as discussed in the FAQ at

It is also possible to remove all traces of the mailing list name from
the message headers and to set the envelope sender to something other
than LISTNAME-bounces at LIST.DOMAIN by implementing a custom handler to
do so. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/l4A9> for information on
custom handlers.

Without the custom handler, the list posting address will be placed in
a Cc: header of a fully personalized post if it is not forced into
Reply-To: and the Sender: and Errors-To: headers and the envelpe
sender (usually copied into Return-Path:) will be set to
LISTNAME-bounces at LIST.DOMAIN. Most, if not all other references to the
list outside of Received: headers can be removed by setting the list's
include_rfc2369_headers to No.
