Many company has the policy, that outgoing mails are "disclaimerized" and
you can't avoid it, since the disclaimer is attached by the outgoing mail
server itself (the MUA itself does not even know about that).  For example
we have this situation as well.  It's another question that I am not using
the company mail system for mailing to this mail list, but if my company
would be interested in XOrg development, and I should use that mail account,
I wouldn't be able to avoid that either.  And I think it's a must everywhere
if there is something involved with the "SOX".  At least I was told that
this is the reason in our case.  Sorry for the off-topic :)
