IMO, that is a bad idea.  But if you really really want to do that (or 
are forced by management and/or your legal department), check out 
MIMEDefang.  MIMEDefang is primarly used for blocking "bad" mail (such 
as viruses and spam), but it can also be used to add disclaimers to MIME 
mail in more or less safe way (probably safer than most people would be 
able to implement themself).  Also, in MIMEDefang, it would be trivial 
(if you get approval from above) to implement not adding disclaimers if 
one of addressees is well known mailing list.
