Both that post and our FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/84A9> refer to
the document at
Did you follow those instructions, particularly items 3, 4, 5 and 6
under Usage?

What is the exact contents of your list's msg_footer? It should be

Text you want to append
to the bottom of your
list mail.

Do you have the "MAILMAN_MIMEDEFANG" line both at the beginning and at
the end of msg_footer. Do you see anything other than
"MAILMAN_MIMEDEFANG" added to the posts?

Please see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/OIDD>.
