Wade, I think this is a bug in Mail.app.  Since you sign your  
messages the message is already MIME multipart.  The PLUG server then  
adds another part for the footer, so not to completely break the  
signature.  This is a "good thing".

The problem is that Mail.app is displaying the footer right after the  
message and ignores the trailing space after your message.  This is a  
bug in Mail.app display routines.  This can be verified by comparing  
the Squirrel mail display to Mail.app.  Squirrel mail gets it right.

The difference between the UPHPU and PLUG lists, are that the UPHPU  
footer includes a blank line *before* the dashed separator line.  If  
PLUG were to prepend a blank line to the footer, you would not see  
this problem.  However, changing something that *should* work just  
for a single bad mail client is not the right way to fix the problem.

Work-arounds, stop signing messages to PLUG, ignore the problem and  
just highlight/copy/paste URLs at the end of messages, use a  
different mail client.

FYI: I use Mail.app too.  I like it, and I will just be ignoring the  
problem until it is fixed.
