Headers and footers won't be added if they can't be done in a
MIME-safe way. That means the original message must:
- be a text/plain with a charset matching the list's preferred
language, with no Content-Transfer-Encoding of base64
- be a multipart/mixed
There have been some recent discussions about how to expand those
criteria, but I haven't had time to respond on that thread yet.
