[Mailman-Developers] multipart/mixed error

This is a multipart MIME message.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

The attached message is a multipart/mixed containing 2 parts. But 
when I send it to the test list, I get a message containing 3 parts - 
there is a new empty part text/plain charset=us-ascii in front.

But if I add a blank in the header like this,
< Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="----_=_NextPart_000_01C0FFD9.6A425B60"
> Content-Type: multipart/mixed ; boundary="----_=_NextPart_000_01C0FFD9.6A425B60"

and send it: it is only 2 parts again.

Several people using my mailman use Microsoft exchange server, 
which sends it the "wrong" way. For them the message looks 
like an empty message, with a "message" as attachment.

Can it be fixed?
Best wishes
