Do you have access to Mailman's logs? If so, check Mailman's vette log.

Also see
for general troubleshooting.

Yes, see Privacy options...->Spam filters in the list's admin interface.

Mailman's spam filtering is based only on headers, not body contents,
although it is possible the list's Content filtering is deleting all
the message body parts, e.g. if the post is an HTML only message and
the list doesn't accepot text/html parts.
