Does this occur with every message in the archive, or just some of
them?  If it's just some of them, it probably indicates that the
original poster used a mail program that didn't send carriage returns in
the first place.  This is a bug or misconfiguration in the original mail
program, and not mailman's fault.  Ask your users to set the line length
at 72 characters.

If this affects all posts, including those with proper carriage returns
in the original message, I'm not sure what to say.
