There are two ways to do this, neither of which is a configuration
setting per se.

The first way is to modify the code in Mailman/Handlers/ToDigest.py to
move the addition of mastheadtxt and the masthead MIME part to the end
of the digests.

The second way is to make a list/domain/site specific masthead.txt
template which is empty (See the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/jYA9>). This will remove the masthead from the
plain format digest, but leave an empty MIME part in the MIME digest.
Then you could add the masthead information to digest_footer.

Either of these methods requires access to the server's Mailman file
system to either edit the handler or install the template.
