It's configurable via the interface. But it has to be done on a per list

I've Cc-ed volunteers so that all te list admins see this request
- please reply to the appropriate list if you want to discuss it.

Volunteers: the request is for the footer that Mailman attaches to have
the first line be "-- " (the standard sig delimiter) rather than the
long series of "-" characters it is at the moment, so that mail clients
that recognise signatures will filter it out or mark it in a different
colour rather than displaying it as part of the message body.
