The message is a single HTML part.

What are the Content Filtering settings for your list?

I am guessing that you accept text/html and that
convert_html_to_plaintext is Yes. If this is the case, I further
suspect that there is some problem with html to plaintext conversion
in your Mailman installation.

If this is the case, since this is a hosted cPanel installation, you
don't have access to the things you need to diagnose this further.

You could try turning off convert_html_to_plaintext if it is on and
then I think the body would go through, but as HTML, not plain text.
