I just tried to send my test list a couple of messages with
MIME attachments and had no problems.  First I sent a message
containing a GIF image.  Mailman properly held the message for admin
approval because the base64 encoding caused the message to exceed the
40k limit.  I approved the message and it got delivered just fine.

Then I sent myself a message containing a smaller (under the limit)
attachment, and this went through without being held for approval.

I think we're going to need help in debugging this particular
problem.  Take a look at the Mailman log files and see if they give
you a clue.  You should also look at your MTA's log files to see if
there's any clue there.
