Check your content filtering settings. If this is a newsletter with
posts only from you or a controlled group, it's probably best to have
filter_content set to No, but if you are filtering content for some
reason, be sure collapse_alternatives is set to No.

If filter_content is No, and your newsletter is still altered, it could
be because of an added Mailman header and/or footer. If this is an
issue, make sure that Non-digest options msg_header and msg_footer are
empty (not just blank).

If filter_content is No and there is no msg_header or msg_footer, the
message delivered from Mailman should have exactly the same structure
and content as the post you send.
