You are sending an HTML post which is not accepted by content
filtering. Send either plain text or multipart/alternative with a
text/plain alternative.

Note that this text will be wrapped, according to the following rules:

    * Each paragraph is filled so that no line is longer than 70
    * Any line that begins with whitespace is not filled.
    * A blank line separates paragraphs.

So, if you really have blank lines in between each line as above, I
don't know why it is wrapped in the final result, but if not, you can
eather put blank lines in between each line or precede each line with
a single blank space to prevent filling and wrapping.

And what is in Mailman's error log?
