Piping the file into uuencode with cat is an unnecessary step; you
could just do

 uuencode picture.jpg picture.jpg|mail user at domain.com

but this has nothing to do with your problem.

It is highly unlikely that this has anything to do with Mailman.

The received mail you describe is exactly what a mail message
containing a uuencoded file normally looks like. Whether you see the
uuencoded file as "raw text" or as an attachment depends on the MUA
that you use to view the mail.
