This has no effect on individual messages. It only affects the format
of the digest for digest subscribers.

Because msg_footer is always either appended to the body of a simple
text/plain message or added as a separate text/plain part. Thus any
HTML in the footer is displayed as text rather than rendered as HTML.

Without modifying the code that adds the footer to the message, there's
nothing you can do about this.
