If the final message delivered from the list is a multipart message
with just two parts and those parts are a text/plain message body and
the text/plain msg_footer, this is a bug which I recently discovered.
I have attached a patch which will fix this. This will be fixed in
Mailman 2.1.15.

If the final message has any other structure, e.g. a text/html body and
the text/plain msg_footer, see the FAQ at
