Mailman has nothing to do with attachments -- its simply a mail
exploder at heart.  If the incoming messages contains attachments,
and no other aspect of the list configuration (such as post size
limits or header field constraints) conflict with that post, it will
be broadcast exactly as per any other list.

Caveat: The automatic footer/signature that Mailman adds by default
to outbound posts can interfere with and may break some MIME
messages under some MUAs.  Properly written MIME parsing software
will not break as the footer falls out side of any MIME context
(thus violating "be generous in what you accept and picky in what
you output").  Its your choice whether to pander to badly written
software or to turn off the footer (I leave it turned on).
