So the problem is actually with mailman.  There are a number of
things it doesn't like, one of which is html email, and the other
is generating a rfc compliant digest.  At the moment I filter
most lists through a spam detector, then a demime filter which
strips out html and attachments.  The samba-technical list
doesn't contain the demime filter as it also blocks attachments
which quite a few people use on the list.  But then the technical
list doesn't attract quite as many vcards and html email anyway.
