Here is your problem:
"X-Mailer: Microsoft Office Outlook, Build 11.0.6353"
The only way you can "fix" this is to stop using Microsoft Outlook
and/or post only in plain-text, not HTML.
This is not a problem with mailman, it is how Outlook interprets
multi-part MIME mail messages and the fact that mailman cannot
determine exactly where to insert a footer into an HTML message as it
can with a plain-text one. Mailman adds the footer for the list as a
separate MIME part of the message preserving the original in its own part.
Microsoft chose to show the additional parts of a multi-part message
as attachments even though they should be rendered in-line like
Eudora and Thunderbird and a number of other programs do. It is not
necessarily incorrect to treat such messages this way as the RFCs
governing it give no guidelines on displaying a message in this form.
This was also addressed on this list at least a couple of times in
the last week or so.
As Mark has both pointed out, see FAQ entry 4.039 for more detail:
Venimus, Saltavimus, Bibimus (et naribus canium capti sumus)
