[Mailman-Users] trouble with multipart and moderation

Hey all, I've been hanging out in IRC for a few days and checking all over the googles but I have not found a solution to these two problems yet.

I used to run a (entirely plain text) Mailman 2 list, but I'm now setting up Mailman 3, built last month by the mailman-bundler package. 

Most things are working great! There are a couple problems I'm trying to work around, though.

1. I can't seem to find a way to send multipart emails. I have a script which generates a multipart email. It only has a plain text and a text/HTML segment. No matter how I have tried to send it into Mailman, the message that gets posted to the list is the raw multipart email as I sent it in. How do I get mailman to realize it's a multipart email and should be formatted as such?

2. I confirmed with the help of others that Mailman 3's behavior is the password you provide in making the django superuser is the password you can use to accept emails to be moderated by email. This always fails. You always get "Results: Confirmation token did not match" and "Unprocessed: Approved: <key>". However, Postorius still works for approving messages.

Lastly, it's already reported as a bug, but you can't open the Held Messages in Postorius unless you comment out the 443rd line in _client.py. Now it's working for us just fine.
