If the voting buttons are implemented with html (or other scripting) and 
anything in the processing chain strips html/etc, then they're gone. Could 
be mailman, could be the recipient's mail reader, could be something else.

Either don't, or more selectively, scrub html. Or, don't use Outlook 
(someone has to say it).

It's also possible that the use in question has certain display 'features' 
disabled, and that prevented the voting buttons from appearing.  (For 
example, I have my email set up to never display html email unless I 
specifically ask for it.)
