The overall message above is multipart/alternative with a text/plain
subpart and a text/calendar subpart. Apparently, Microsoft Exchange
mails a calendar with a text/plain alternative for those mail clients
that don't understand the calendar in the same way as it might include
a text/plain alternative to a text/html message.
Since your content filtering options include "collapse_alternatives =
yes", Mailman selects only the first alternative of those that remain
after initial filtering for delivery to the list. Thus the
text/calendar alternative is dropped in favor of the text/plain
You have two choices:
1) teach Microsoft Exchange to send the calendar part only without the
text/plain alternative, or generate the message differently so it does
2) set "collapse_alternatives = no", but this may have other, unwanted
