yes, there are some people out there using MS Outlook or so...
there the footer is not shown in the message, but attached
as a Attachement called ATT00010.txt ...

Yes, in "good" mail clients they do  (I've tested NetscapeMail, Mutt,
and also OutlookExpress seems to work fine with different mime-types)

But... maybe, if all people using MS Outlook get messages with
Attachements, they possibly start thinking about switching to a
better client *g*
