I'm sorry I can't get into the cpanel forums.

But I did look at that Pipermail message (you need to follow the link to
the one page that's in that date index).  If I follow the link to the
GIF image, it shows up just fine.

Please note that the rendering of messages such as multipart/alternative
are depending on list settings that I can't see, such as which content
types to pass or scrub.  I also haven't seen the original message so I
don't know how what was posted matches against the filter_mime_types and
pass_mime_types settings in the Content Filter section.  There are also
some site-wide settings which describe how to archive things like HTML
messages, although I don't think that's what's happening here (it looks
more like some unintended content-types are getting scrubbed out).

I can't see any bugs, but your list may not be configured the way you
want it for the types of messages being posted to it.
