Please give us more information. If filter_content is No and
scrub_nondigest is No, messages sent to the list should have all the
MIME headers, boundaries, and structure intact except for possibly
wrapping the entire message structure in a higher level
multipart/mixed message in order to add msg_header and/or msg_footer

Is this Mailman 2.1.6 installed from source or a package, and if a
package, which?

Under what circumstances are you seeing this?

Do you have an example of a raw message as sent to the list and the
corresponding raw message as received from the list or found in the
archives/private/listname.mbox/listname.mbox file.
