mailing list footer addition to MIME email

2011-01-14 13:49:42

Can't decide on the right place to ask this question, so you folks got 

A list member sends a message that contains a MIME body. (If it makes a difference between a simple, since body that is MIME encoded, versus one that has "attachments", then clarifying that is part of the exercise.)

The mail list adds a typical footer to the message and sends it out.

How does the footer related to the received MIME? Is a new MIME body created? Is the footer added as a separate MIME attachment? Is the footer somehow distinguishable from the original MIME content?

I'm trying to understand the nature of the violence done by a mailing list to the body.
