At the bottom of every message sent from the list, I see this:
 	[ Note: This message contains email list management information] 
This is actually a link. I move down so that it is the active link and
press return/enter, I get a screen of information about the lists with
links to various pages, including the archives.

I can't say where it would be in Thunderbird or what it would look
like, of course. But it is definitely present in all messages I get
from the list.

This only appears for messages sent via the list, of course. If
somebody replies to this message using my email address, it won't
appear. If somebody replies using both my email address and the list
address, I'll get one copy with the list management information and one
without. (So I think it is stripped when you reply to a message.)

I don't think it is in the headers. It is more like another part of the
email. Sorry, I don't know the right term.
