Any idea what the headers look like, going into Mailman?

If they're RFC-compliant, it's a Mailman bug; if not, I'd
say it is an Outlook/Exchange bug.  Talk to MS.  Good luck!

A small procmail/formail arrangement on the front end of the 
pipeline into Mailman should be able to compensate for the 
problem, in the latter case.
