[Mailman-Users] Messages approved never show up on list

text/html is definitely missing from pass_mime_type. I can add that, but I'm wondering why that type isn't included by default in the install. Are there other problems that this introduces?

I've sent html to this list before via Outlook 2007, but this particular user is using Outlook 2010. Guess something changed.

Thanks for the tips.

Not only is auto-discard by content filtering the most likely
explanation, in the case of auto-discard following moderator approval.
it is the only explanation. The other possible auto-discards would
have either occured before the post's being held for moderator
approval or would have been bypassed for an approved post.
