If it is truly empty, this should not be happening. I suspect your
msg_footer might contain some white space.

I'm comfortable with editing python if need be. I tried the steps described here (returning an empty value from the class HTMLFormatter, def GetMailmanFooter, but this didn't work for me. Can anyone point me in the direction of the part of mailman that adds that text footer attachment to HTML messages so I can tweak it as appropriate?

The post you point to is not relevant. It's talking about web pages in
the web interface, not list posts.

The code is Mailman/Handlers/Decorate.py
