No, it's caused by the list software which forgets to upconvert the
character set of your email so that the (then-edited) email is able
to represent both your content and the appended footer.

Thanks for your smart response dude.
This happens just on my Windows Thunderbird client and not on my Linux
TW one.

[PM Do you know if there is some Thunderbird extension or even settings which
could avoid the character-set convertion mispelling by the list software?]



It is the "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64" in your mail. (This is
independent of Content-Type: ..utf-8) Whether it is your
MUA or the MTA that does this, I cannot tell for sure, and I do not
remember any knobs in software to influence this.

Either way, it is a list software (-> mlmmj) bug to blindly
append the footer whilst ignoring C-T-E.
