There is a patch available which when applied to MM source makes the  
inclusion of the original mail in the notification to the list admin a  
per-list option which can be set via the admin web GUI.

As it stands, the patch has to be applied to the Mailman source  
distribution and there are only versions for MM 2.1.2 and MM 2.1.3

That said, it will probably work with earlier versions of MM 2.1 or can  
be trivially adapted to work with them. The code changes themselves are  
really quite small and could be added by hand to an installed system if  
you really wanted to.

Take a look at the patch at the UR~L below, it is just a text file  
containing unified diff format and quite man readable:
