I agree with Bryan - it is not an easy change to make and to do properly
requires a substantial (fundamental) change in the way emails and in
particular recipients are handled. I have managed to make the change in
my organisation however it is a bit of a hack and I have had to remove
recipient validation to make it work which is one reason why I haven't
contributed the code yet. That and not enough time to strip out the
Adding the recipient list into the body of the mail is a much easier
short term solution.
I am hoping to work through this issue as it is a common request and
fix/tidy up my code but it will be a couple of months before I would be
in a position to contribute the code.

This would not be an easy change.
The some people have handled it in the past is having Eventum put a note
at the top of each message with the list of recipients. However this
patch has not made it into the main branch yet so you would have to add
it yourself for now.
