  *head hanging in shame*

  I've got buckleys getting the policy changed (this company employs over
  30,000 people). The system is not supposed to put the disclaimer on
  replies (I mostly try to reply to things), but how the mailserver decides
  that is a mystery and seems quite non-deterministic.

  I think I'll just avoid sending messages from this account, period.
  (except for this one, I hope the disclaimer doesn't appear)...

  Apologies to everyone.
