I'm running into same troubles. Every mail from my lists comes along 
with footer attachment instead of appended plaintext.
I tried to send mails with my mozilla thunderbird, which uses plaintext:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii; format=flowed
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

To be sure, I did a simple telnet session on my mailserver on port 25 
and sent a testmail to a list running on that server - without 
mime/multipart of course.

Both mails come back from the list with the footer as attachment. and 
that's not what I expect...

Thanks in advance you your suggestions.

I'm riding Mailman 2.1.4 on Debian Woody (2.1.4-1.backports.org.1), Exim
