Summary: mailman breaks PGP/MIME messages

Initial Comment:
When sending PGP/MIME messages to mailman, mailman 

tries to wrap the message by packaging it into its own 

message. To quote the enimgamil developers:



"The message from mailman, however, has a Content-

Type: multipart/mixed, where the signed message is 

packed into the first part of that message (there is an

additional part with some footer message). This is not 

compliant to the PGP/MIME standard, no tool will be able 

to read such a message."



I originally filed this bug with the enigmail developers, 

but agree with them that the bug is on mailman's side. 

Original bug report (including attachments of example 

mail) can be read at

This is with the mailman 2.1.2-6 deian package
