FWIW this is a FAQ.

There are two places where Mailman doesn't handle MIME:  text
digests and the internal pipermail archiver.  

  If your users are complaining about seeing MIME content in text
  digests, have them use MIME digests.  Or more simply, just move
  all your digest users over to MIME digests and disable text
  digests entirely.

  If you need to handle MIME in the message archiver you'll need an
  external archiver.  Pipermail is not that capable currently.  I
  recommend and use MHonArc See previous list messages for details.

The internal archiver currently does not support this.  Use an
external archiver.
