The footer would also be missing in MIME messages with multipart sections.
The footer gets put on after the last multipart section and doesn't get
displayed by the MIME/email client.  If you look at the raw message source
you'll see it there.

I'm working on a Perl script to strip MIME binary and HTML sections from
messages and leave behind just the text/plain section.  Currently I have
something which seems to be working fairly well on my US-english lists,
although it still has a bit of work to go before I can feel safe giving it
out to folks.
