Here are the places in Mailman 2.1.5 where a message can be discarded.

   Any match of a (header,regexp) tuple coded in KNOWN_SPAMMERS in
   Any match on the list's Privacy options...->Spam
filters->header_filter_rules with a discard action.

   Any post from a moderated member if member_moderation_action is
   Any post from a non-member if generic_nonmember_action is discard or
the poster is in discard_these_nonmembers

The above discards by Moderate will be bypassed (not done) if the
message contains an Approved: header with a valid list admin or
moderator password.

   A message will be discarded if there is nothing left after content

Scrubber can also discard an HTML message if
mm_cfg.ARCHIVE_HTML_SANITIZER = 0, but in Mailman 2.1.5, Scrubber is
only invoked by archiving, so this wouldn't be the reason in your case.
