Mailman doesn't really "send" messages.  In that, other than certain 
list administration messages (including password reminders, etc...), 
it does not originate any messages.

More correctly, Mailman filters the messages it gets.

If you send plain text messages to a Mailman mailing list, then it 
will send plain text messages to the recipients.  If you send it 
MIME/HTML-formatted messages, then depending on how it is configured 
to filter the messages, it could re-send the message pretty much 
exactly as it got it.

So, everything is in how you set up the content filtering.
