FAQ
Public bug reported:

I do not know exactly how to replicate this problem, as I am merely a
subscriber on a mailman listserv.

I received an email where there was a hyperlink to a webpage at the very
end. Then, the default signature for the listserv was the next thing in
the email. For some reason, the hyperlink had merged with the signature,
causing the link to fail and the signature at the end to look awkward. I
assume that the user forgot to include the end tag </a> for the
hyperlink at the end of the message, but I'm not entirely sure what
happened. I would be happy to forward the email if necessary.

    I don't know what happened either, but it appears that the list admin
    may have specified the list's msg_footer incorrectly. What I do know is
    this. Footers can't contain HTML tags because footers are always added
    either directly to the end of a text/plain message or in a separate
    text/plain message part. If URLs in footers are rendered as hyperlinks,
    it is the recipient's mail client that is doing this.

    When Mailman adds a footer at the end of a text/plain message, it always
    ensures there is at least one newline between the message body and the
    footer, so the possible explanations that I see are either a broken mail
    client is reading the message, or the footer was created with the URL
    not separated from the rest of the footer, or this is not standard GNU
    Mailman. I would have to see the raw message to say more.

    You can either forward the mail to me (see my Launchpad profile) or save
    it to a file and attach that to this report.
