I am that person. Hi I'm Stefan :)

You suggested (in a PM to Anita, I think) that we add more logging into 
.../Mailman/Handlers/Decorate.py like this:

syslog('error', 'can't add footer because xxx')

Well I did so in several places, even outside of conditions, just so I 
could see that Decorate.py is called.

It is not.

A 'grep Decorate /home/mailman/Mailman/Handlers' only gave SMTPDirect.py 
as files calling Decorate.py.

Since we were not able to use SMTPDirect.py because the server only 
accepts authenticated smtp-connections, which do not seem to work with 

So, against the warning in Sendmail.py, we are using that handler for 
sending mail.
I have inserted the call to Decorate.py I saw in SMTPDirect.py where I 
thought it would be appropriate, but with no success.

I have not much knowledge in python. I renamed the Sendmail.pyc so the 
new source would be compiled.
While the list still works, there is no new compiled version in the 
directory. Strange.

I would be very thankful for any clues,
