1.  Create a plain text file in /bin named "footer".  Make your footer there 
like this:

Insert the text you want here & make it real nice.
%(real_name)s mailing list

2.  Then run /bin/config_list -i foot listname

That should do it.  But if you change the footer via the web interface, you 
will screw it up.  Change the /bin/footer file instead.

This technique will allow you to use double quotes and other problematic 
characters.  - John
