[Bug 872538] Re: hyperlinks at end of email broken

I don't know what happened either, but it appears that the list admin
may have specified the list's msg_footer incorrectly. What I do know is
this. Footers can't contain HTML tags because footers are always added
either directly to the end of a text/plain message or in a separate
text/plain message part. If URLs in footers are rendered as hyperlinks,
it is the recipient's mail client that is doing this.

When Mailman adds a footer at the end of a text/plain message, it always
ensures there is at least one newline between the message body and the
footer, so the possible explanations that I see are either a broken mail
client is reading the message, or the footer was created with the URL
not separated from the rest of the footer, or this is not standard GNU
Mailman. I would have to see the raw message to say more.
