[Mailman-Users] How to track down someone mislabeling msgs as abuse?

I tried this just now, adding "%(user_address)" to the footer, and I'm geting:
Warning: The following illegal substitution variables were found in the msg_footer string: user_address
(I included "OWNERS_CAN_ENABLE_PERSONALIZATION = Yes" into mm_cfg.py, and I did bin/mailmanctl restart.)
What version of mailman are you using? Mine is 2.1.22, which I know is old.

About 1-2 times a month, I receive an automated message from AOL's abuse list, saying that someone has marked one of the messages as "abuse". Unfortunately, there's no way to track down who this could be, since there are about 5 addresses on the list which are AOL addresses. All I get is this:

>> I've read that some people have addressed this by inserting a unique string at the end of each person's message. I don't see a way to do this with Mailman 2.1.22. Would something like this be possible with more recent versions such as 2.1.27, or even the latest 3.x version? Are there other ways to address this? I don't want to reprimand the person, I just want to educate them to not mark list messages as abuse!
>> Any help would be greatly appreciated!
