We recently migrated our mailman server from a server with Version 2.1.1 to a new server with Version 2.1.9. One of our mailing lists distributes a PDF file attachment. However, when I switch to the new server the PDF would be delivered to some MUAs fine, but other MUAs would receive the message below:

Excerpt for Groupwise MUA:

It works fine on the old server, but we need to retire it soon. I have compared the list configuration and they are identical. I setup a test list on the new server and I get the same results.

The message is sent to the list via the following script:

( cat to.txt ; uuencode test.pdf test.pdf ) | mailx -s "Check" list at example.com 

Note: I get the same results with .doc as well.

Is this a bug? 
Is there another config file I should check?
