Mailman does Internet e-mail.  Are these phones/PDAs doing Internet 
e-mail?  If so, then the mail clients shouldn't have any problems 
with the messages Mailman is sending out -- I know I don't have any 
such problems on my Palm Treo 680.  Heck, in an emergency I can even 
handle the web-based moderation queue for Mailman-hosted mailing 
lists on my Treo -- that's one advantage of a simple web user 

Now, if these phones/PDAs are doing SMS messages that have been 
gatewayed from Internet e-mail, then you're talking about a problem 
with the gateway system, and there may not be a whole lot we can do 
to help you.
