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


------cut example message.footer.mime here
Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="_x_1234567890"
Content-Disposition: inline

Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Disposition: inline

This is the message footer in text in the multipart file

Content-Type: text/html;
Content-Disposition: inline

<HTML><HR />
<B>This is the footer in HTML in the multipart file</B>
<HR /></HTML>

-------------- end message.footer.mime here -----------------------
