What language is your list configured for?  The mailman lists are 
configured for US English, and so messages posted in pretty much any 
language will get the footers attached without MIME attachments (since 
any other character set is a strict superset of US English, headers and 
footers in US English can be concatenated with the original message 
without MIME parts).

**  List is configured for English

Any other language will most likely get MIME attachments for headers and

footers, since the headers and footers will be assumed to be in the same

language as the list, and so they cannot be safely concatenated to 
messages in other character sets.

It works in every mail client I have access to (mostly Mozilla-based 
mail readers) and a few webmail readers I've tried (yahoo, 
squirrelmail).  I don't have access to Outlook or Eudora.

**  I do have a test list setup besides the ones in use.  I would be
more then willing to add you to it and send a few test postings to let
you see the headers and maybe the problem.  If so send me an email
directly and I will add you.  


Thanks for your time and effort,
