Should Mailman filter the content of list traffic according to the
settings below? No
Remove message attachments that don't have a matching content type.
Leave this field blank to skip this filter test.
Should Mailman collapse multipart/alternative to its first part
Should Mailman convert text/html parts to plain text? This conversion
happens after MIME attachments have been stripped. Yes
Action to take when a message matches the content filtering rules.
The Content Filtering settings are the same across all 3 lists the admin
owns but only this one is it working

I see that my attachments did not come across so I have attached the raw
removing only some private information. The owner forwarded to me a copy of
the email sent to the list.
