Howdy.  While researching a problem that a user was having with long URLs 
getting wrapped in their Mac mail client I came across the following thread 
from last year dicussing the very same problem:


To summarize, "delsp=yes; format=flowed" is getting dropped during Mailman's 
parsing of the message.  At the time of the note above Mark Sapiro  said that 
this was due to a mix of issues within Mailman plus the underlaying Python 

Has there been any change of the status of this issue or is the only 
workaround still to turn off attachement scrubbing and empty the header / 

Mark said previously: 

"You might be able to avoid the problem if you set scrub_nondigest to No
and make sure both msg_header and msg_footer are empty, but this may
not be satisfactory for other reasons."
