No. You have a couple of choices. You can investigate using either the
"Patching Mailman to solve this problem" patches ot the "Using
mimedefang to solve this problem" method referenced in the FAQ at

Or you can develop your own custom handler which will add your
unsubscribe footer directly to the text/plain and text/html body parts
of the message.

You don't do any of that.

You create Add_Footer.py (or whatever you want to call it), save it in
the Mailman/Handlers/ directory and add 'Add_Footer' to the pipeline
just before 'ToOutgoing' for the lists you want by following
instructions in the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/4030615>.
