What you can do, and how complex it is to do it depends on the list. In
particular, it depends on whether posts (and replies) originate from
only a small group of people who can be relied on to always submit posts
with a particular MIME structure (and what that structure is), or
whether posts come from a larger group using different MUAs and posting
styles, and particularly in the latter case, it also depends on what
content filtering settings are applied.

In the more universal case, probably the easiest thing to do would be to
modify Mailman/Handlers/Decorate.py to always add msg_footer as a
separate MIME part with Content-Type: text/html and Content-Disposition:
inline. Then you could code the appropriate HTML in msg_footer including
an img tag with src = the URL of a file on your server containing the logo.

This will work, but not all MUAs will display the footer part inline
