I'm pretty sure that Mailman doesn't use PHP -- It's Python, instead.
So, whatever is going on here, I don't think it has anything to do
with Mailman per se.

Split the file? Mailman headers? Folders? Sent mail? None of this
sounds like it has anything remotely to do with Mailman at all. This
all sounds like a webmail problems, or maybe a problem with whatever
program she uses to send e-mail.

Seeing that this doesn't seem to have anything at all to do with
Mailman, I have no clue why it may have broken, or what may have been
the problem. I don't even understand what you're talking about
