First of all, this is cPanel. It is known that cPanel has modifications
that affect footers, so this is probably a cPanel issue that we can't
resolve. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/sYA9>.

Second, the content filtering settings you have make no sense. They say
for example that a multipart/alternative message with a text/plain
alternative and a text/html alternative will be converted to a
multipart/alternative message with the original text/plain alternative
and a second text/plain alternative converted from the text/html

It would make much more sense to either set

collapse_alternatives = yes


convert_html_to_plaintext = no
