Thanks Steve. Will experiment with the approach that you've outlined below, especially since List.pm seems to have changed quite a lot from the time that the patch proposed at
It would be good if there is a reliable way to have an inline footer to be displayed via Sympa 6.X for "common" email clients (regardless of whether the original email was sent in HTML or plain-text) :-).

Isn't a simple solution for introduce a way to change the Content-Type on
the 'footer' multipart message to text/html ?
(I would think most modern clients would just render this beneath the main
part of the message - can't really see why
it would differ to the "text/plain" scenario being used at present.)
You can do this using the message.footer.mime file. By creating this file (instead of message.footer) looking somewhat akin to the example below, you can specify a content type and disposition, and so get your footer created as a separate text/html and text/plain pair in a multipart/alternative , with the inline disposition set. In theory, this should cause the footer to be appended to the main message. However, in Outlook 2013 at least, you instead get the two alternative footers (text and html) displayed as attachments. In Yahoo webmail, it is correctly displayed with the two HTML portions (main message and footer) inline. Hooray, Yahoo have done one thing right this week. Gmail also display it inline as we wanted. Of course, none of these footers are appended if you have an SMIME signed message.

>is there a possibility to add a footer in html-format to mails generated by sympa? I think the problem with HTML footers is that Sympa would not know where to add them. It can add a separate MIME-multipart section already, or can append a text footer to a text message, but if you have an HTML footer, where does it go? It cannot append it to an HTML message, is it would then be outside the main HTML and BODY tags. It would need some complex parsing to insert into the middle of the HTML somehow, which may or may not work depending on the rest of the HTML. Setting footer type to MIME just makes the text footer get appended as a new MIME multipart section. I'd love to be able to add an HTML footer but I think it would require Sympa to do some more complex HTML parsing and editing on the main HTML message body.
