I have multiple email addresses linked to my Gmail account.

I am signed up to an email group where the messages I receive are sent to:

To: all-users@some-group.com

My email address is not shown. How do I find out which email address this was addressed to?

Check the Delivered-To portion of the email header. This will show the actual address the email was sent to.

It's usually the first line before the rest of the information:

Delivered-To: your.address@example.com
Received: by XX.XXX.X.XXX with SMTP id XXX
    Thu, 13 Aug 2009 05:25:18 -0700 (PDT)

To see the full header information, click on the down arrow next to the Reply option on the email and click Show original. This is usually at the top right of the email itself.

show original menu

Note that some themes and skins may move the menus around.

Your image is broken. Do you have the original image that you can reupload? –  8088 Sep 20 '11 at 6:17

If it isn't displayed in the full headers, you'll probably need to log into the email accounts individually and check.
