So.. Most people have their roles search the entire message for any occurance
of their email address. I figure adding a Delivered-To: or For: header in the
headers would fix that.
This is an MTA issue. When mailman queues the outgoing message,
in most cases it will queue just one copy for all of the mailing list
recipients. It will then be up to the MTA to split that out as
appropriate and deliver the copies to the recipients.

You could turn on list customization, so that mailman sends out a
separate message for every recipient, at which time it will put the
user's e-mail address in the footer. But this causes a significant
increase in load on the server, and may not be feasible in your case.

    Would still be interesting to see if this is possible, but I found a work
    around in Sendmail to just add:

    H?P?X-Envelope-To: $u
    Note that the $u macro will be defined if and only if there is
    one and only one recipient for the current message. This will not be
    the case for mailing list mail being sent by the server, unless you
    have turned on list customization. In that case, mailman will send
    out one copy of the message for each and every recipient, and will
    put their e-mail address in the footer.

    Also, in the case of a single recipient per message, most MTAs
    are already configured to put this kind of information into the
    headers, usually the "Received:" headers.
