I actually tried putting it as a header, with the expected results.  I
know it's an issue purely with Outlook (no other MUA in the office has
had such a reaction with messages sent through Mailman).  I may just
have to write a pre- or post-process filter that adds the footer into
the message manually.  Thanks for the help.
