[Mailman-Users] HTML sent to MM 2.1.5 breaking

Pardon the repetition, but I'm asking this question again since nobody could
remember the first time around. :-)

I can send a formatted HTML email to Mailman 2.1.5 but it breaks.
The text is centered and the top graphic (which is correctly linked) isn't
showing up. I'm not even using any settings in Content Filtering. Is there
any other Mailman-specific settings for allowing HTML?

The file I'm using is here (the email should arrive looking like this):


But instead, it arrives looking like this:


When I send it just to myself, it formats correctly.

I'm on OSX, latest version of Entourage. The Mailman is on an xserve Tiger

Any ideas gratefully acknowledged.
