I can't explain why this would be the case. When you mail to a list's
-join address, Mailman only looks at the address in the From: header of
the message. The Subject:, body content and MIME structure (plain text
vs HTML) of the message should be irrelevant. The only thing that
matters is the address. If the address was not already a list member,
you should get a response either saying you've been subscribed or more
often, asking you to confirm your request. If the address was already a
list member, you should get a response saying you're already subscribed.
