I'm not sure that is even possible unless perhaps you
use stream-by-recipient since messages could often
have both internal and outbound destinations and you
don't even know until all the aliases and forwards are
resolved.   The obvious way is to bounce outbound mail
through another machine at the sendmail level using
SMART_HOST and adding the disclaimer there.  There
should be a way to make that a different instance of
sendmail listening on a different port (see
http://www.sendmail.org/faq/section3.html#3.39) but
it might be easier to just find another box.
