[Mailman-Users] subscribed address that forwards to secondary address can't be identified

Does it arrive as a forward? If so, it might be possible to view the 
entire message header and trace it that way. Web-based email being what 
it is, I don't know how much or little gmail retains of the message 
headers of forwards or whether gmail allows those message headers to be 
inspected. If the gmail web interface doesn't permit viewing the message 
headers, gmail may allow the message to be saved as text and I'm 
guessing that would typically include the full message headers.
