Thanks for the response.
The poster is a member of the list. Let's start from there.
Looking at my configuration for the list, under content filtering, it does
not look so obvious that a message of content-type: text/html would be
discarded. I had the option to convert such messages into plain text set to
"yes". I have now enabled the option to forward those posts to List Owner
instead of discard. I think the default action should be changed to "Forward
to List Owner" since on that page, how Mailman deals with such content does
not look so obvious to the configurator!
All other possibilities you suggested did NOT match:-)
