Hi, I have a longrunning mailman mailing list (circa 15yrs) where increasing numbers of members are subscribed from @nhs.net addresses (members/workers of the British NHS)

Recently the NHS email service has in its wisdom decided to add a couple of disclaimers to every message that passess through its service and I can't seem to get a way of removing them and was hoping for some advice.  I'd rather not use third party add-ons if possible.  I have no control over the addition of the disclaimers.  I have little control over the behaviour of my members re tendency to top post, not snip irrelevant posts etc.  I merge the posts into a fudforum forum to act as a public archive, and sometime posting source.

I am using v2.1.9 (via webmin)


The two "disclaimers" are as follows

This one NHS.net top posts

And finally this is added by the list itself which I would quite like to scrub when requoted
