That's probably not the mailer but rather the mailing list software
which appends a signature with information about the list's
administrativa at the bottom of each post. This signature is us-ascii
encoded text/plain. Therefore, if the message itself has a different
encoding (or even a different MIME-type), the list software cannot
simply attach it but has to create a new MIME-part for it. The latter is
what appears as a "Part 1.2" attachment in Thunderbird.

? I don't understand what you're saying.
