Hi Mark,

Many thanks for your help.

> Is your Mailman/Handlers/Decorate.py unmodified?

This is an unmodified installation.

Here's what I get:

$ bin/config_list -o - moxiemail | grep -A10 msg_footer
msg_footer = """_______________________________________________

Also, I should have noted in my original messge that this installation  
was recently moved from another server, and I believe that my failed  
attempt is actually the first message that's being sent to the list  
through the new setup (it's used as a broadcast newsletter list, not  
as a discussion list).

In case this is relevant, the original server was running a previous  
version of 2.1.x (not sure which version precisely, sorry). I  
installed 2.1.11 on the new server and then copied the contents of  
lists and archives/private from the old to the new, running "bin/ 
check_perms -f" afterward.

Thanks again for helping to troubleshoot this issue, it's much  

All best,
