FAQ
Has anyone experienced any problems with the Footers for the messages
not being displayed?

The symptoms are that the defined footer for all mailing lists will
disappear, until all admin requests are processed.

Is there a lock being held somewhere?

    This ought to be in the FAQ (maybe it is...).

    Anyway, this happens when folks are using html style email and the folks
    reading the email are using something like Outlook.

    Take a look at the source text of the Message and you will see that the
    Footer is actually there. The email client is not displaying the footer
    text because it is tacked onto the end of the html message and comes after
    the </html> in the message.

    So the real problem is with the email client.

    If this really bothers you, then move the information into a header or tell
    your folks not to use html email.

    No, its a MIME problem. Nothing more, nothing less.
    So the real problem is with the email client.
    No, the problem is that for MIME messages Mailman 2.0.* is producing
    bogus messages.
