This appears to be a problem with encoding/decoding of quoted-printable.

What Mailman version is this?

If Mailman is recent enough to have it, is Non-digest options ->
scrub-nondigest Yes or No? (your "The attachments are travelling okay
with the messages" implies no, but just checking.)

Is your list digestable and if so, are the links in the "plain" digest
OK or are they like the archive?

Does this happen with every attachment, or only in some messages?
