[Mailman-Users] cannot read moderated posts on iPhone

I am curious if other iPhone users can read the moderated messages on their
phones. I had easily been able to until 1-2 months ago when I suddenly
couldn't anymore but I cannot pinpoint why and I would like to get that
ability back again. I can now read only the plain text portion but not the
2nd or 3rd sub-parts.

The admin_immed_notify moderated posts messages are and always have
been a MIME multipart message with 3 sub-parts. The first sub-part is
text/plain and is the notice to the admin about the held message; the
second is a message/rfc822 part containing the held message itself,
and the third is a message/rfc822 part containing the message you can
reply to to discard or, with the addition of an Approved: <password>
header or line, accept the held message.

My best guess as to what changed is the iPhone mail app.
