the answer I believe, is that you more or less can't right now.

First, the MLM shouldn't be modifying the content of a message, IMHO. 
that's the author's content, not the list server's. So it shouldn't 
go mucking with it.

We do make exceptions for attaching a footer (in my view, somewhat 
grudgingly) -- as long as the footer is clearly delineated. There are 
some hacks in the mailman archives by folks who've tweaked mailman to 
add content like this into a message, but it's not really supported 
and you'll have to modify the hacks to do this. But it's a start, if 
you really, really want it.

I'm not sure it's worth the effort, personally.
