And other user's posts go to the list OK?

That's the puzzling part. Ar you sure there's not a

   'Message discarded, msgid: ...

message in the vette log?

Here's my best guess on the problem.

Content filtering is enabled.
HTML is not accepted
filter_action is Discard (or maybe it's Reject, and the rejection is
  getting lost/spam filtered/?

The user's MUA is set to generate HTML only messages which get filtered
by content filtering, but replies get replied to in the format of the
original and so are plain text and accepted.
