You still haven't told me where you are seeing this footer, but I will
continue to assume it is on the bottom of posts and digests as sent to
list members from Mailman.
As I said,

To be more specific, assuming what you put above is the exact footer
that you want on both messages and digests, put the following 4 lines
in mm_cfg.py perhaps replacing any settings for DEFAULT_MSG_FOOTER and
DEFAULT_DIGEST_FOOTER that are already there (watch out for a wrapped
DEFAULT_MSG_FOOTER = """If you have questions, problems, comments, etc,
send them to
DEFAULT_DIGEST_FOOTER = DEFAULT_MSG_FOOTER
This will set the default for new lists. For existing lists, you can
edit each list manually through the web admin pages mentioned above,
or you can do the following to set the footers for all lists.
Put the following 6 lines in a file (again watch for wrapped lines).
msg_footer = """If you have questions, problems, comments, etc, send
digest_footer = """If you have questions, problems, comments, etc, send
Then cd to the Mailman installation directory and run the following
for list in `bin/list_lists --bare`
do bin/config_list -i path/to/above/file $list
If you want something different from the exact footer above, you can
edit it accordingly. Go to the list admin Non-digest options page and
follow the (Details for msg_footer) link for information on the
various %(xxx)s substitutions you can use.
