"Necessary" is dependent on control, of course, and I believe many
people are in the same situation as Matthew. If they want to use
corporate email they have to put up with the crap that their
ill-informed legal department makes the sysadmins configure the outgoing
mailer to add.
That particular trailing crud would be much nicer if they'd put a space
after the leading "--", that way at least we wouldn't have to trim them
out of our replies. This merely tells us that the sysadmins are as
ill-informed as the legal staff ... or perhaps it's just Matthew trying
his best to help us, since I see it appears above the list mailer
trailer. The system is probably trimming the trailing spaces off the
message body. Oh well, ...
