[This is a total guess, with no real Outlook experience to back it up.]
Outlook/Exchange, unless otherwise configured, sends a duplicate
copy of its text-only mail as a "rich text" base64 attachment. I think
what is happening is that Majordomo produces the following based on
what you send in:
Subject: [prefix] subject
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
This is the body of the message being sent.
[Majordomo attaches footer here.]
Since the "trailer" portion has no MIME type or body part
delineation, Outlook ignores it (ie, will not display it) when
read back. But it is still probably there.
This would explain the missing footer problem. As for the missing
subject prefix, the only thing I can think of is that maybe there
is a copy of the headers included in the main body part; Majordomo
will be modifying the Subject in the envelope but not the body
part, and Outlook will ignore the envelope Subject in deference
to the MIME body.

Since it works for everyone but you w/Outlook, why would you think
it is a Majordomo config issue? This is clearly an Outlook/MIME
problem. Turn off your Rich Text. Stop sending MIME.
