How long are these lines before and after wrapping?

If you look for example at
you will see a post with a 740 character line that isn't wrapped.

There is no mm_cfg.py setting for this. In fact, I don't think there is
anything in the mailman code at all that does this intentionally, so I
can't tell you where to look.

If the lists Non-digest options->scrub-nondigest is set to Yes, you
might try setting it to No to see if that makes a difference (if so,
you would then look at Mailman/Handlers/Scrubber.py).
