I think I finally attached the raw message for you.  Hopefully you can glean

Did that.  This apparently resolved the issue as the admin owner is happy. 
However, I am not totally convinced that it is a mail client issue.  I 
am seeing 4 parts
in my Thunderbird mail client:

plain text (header)
plain text (body)
html (body)
plain text (footer)

Why would mailman be sending plain text and html attachments? When the
header is removed, my Thunderbird mail client shows the email message
as plain text and one attachment, the footer.
