This is a result of the Scrubber in action. The problem is that
when messages come into the mailing list in MIME format, it is not
possible to put multiple messages together into a digest with all
their various MIME bodyparts.
The non-text MIME bodyparts have to be scrubbed and placed in a
particular directory on the webserver, and the Scrubber will normally
include an URL pointing to their location so that people can retrieve
those parts with their web browser.
Short of eliminating all non-text MIME bodyparts from the entire
mailing list (including the digests), it is not possible to eliminate
this scrubbing activity for digests. It is possible to configure the
Scrubber so that it does the same thing for regular mailing list
recipients as it does for digest recipients, if that behaviour is
