Is't possible to send and receive rich-text formatted emails with mailman version 2.1.9? filter_content option is set to No.  I tried to sent an email with some cutting of an excel table from an excel sheet, the email format befor sending it by outlook to the list was set to rich-text, and this email was saved in the archive BUT NEVER RECEIVED any list member!

If the post is in the archive, it should have been sent to the list
members. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/A4E9> for

If the lists Content filtering -> filter_content is No, and Non-digest
options -> scrub_nondigest is No, messages should be sent to the
non-digest list members without alteration by Mailman.

As far as the mail in the archive being "simple text", the pipermail
archive page only contains the plain text parts of the message, but
there should be hyperlinks to the non-plain text parts.
