Are the messages being sent in HTML?  I never seem to have this trouble 
with plain-text emails, but the HTML conversion on my lists will 
sometimes result in weird formatting on messages sent originally in HTML.

The best way to fix it is to not send HTML messages, but it may be 
easier to disable Mailman's HTML-to-plaintext translation depending on 
your users.
