Do you think maybe a newline could be added to the end of it? :)

The only reason I ask is, because it ends with a URL, Outlook
considers any mouse click in the white space below it to be a click
ON that line itself! (thus causing IE to launch and navigate to that

Yeah, yeah, I don't want to hear about using Outlook or IE. No need
to start an off-topic flame war here.

It's just that I personally view my emails (from lists/people that I
trust!) using OL's "Preview Pane", and whenever a very short email is
being viewed, there's a lot of whitespace following the footer (about
1/2 a screen worth), and clicking *anywhere* in that white space
(blank area) of the screen causes OL to think I clicked on the link!
(thereby causing IE to launch as I explained. Stupid I know, but
that's Outlook for you. <shrug>)

Now I realize it's not exactly kosher to be asking the list to make a
change for the sake of just one person, BUT....

I rather suspect given the number of people likely subscribed to this
list (a LOT I'm guessing!) that I am probably NOT the *only* one
experiencing this issue (but readily admit I have no way of knowing
that; it's just a "gut feeling" guess).

Anyway, that's it.

Sorry to use so many words for such a small an insignificant request.

Thanks for everything you folks do and please keep up the good work.

p.s. Why does every HTML email that comes across the list have the
footer included as an ATTACHMENT? What's up with THAT?! :)
