If you mean PDFs are removed by content filtering, add


and perhaps also


to Content filtering -> pass_mime_types

If you mean PDF's are being removed from plain text format digests and
posts in the list archive, stored aside and replaced by links to the
stored aside file, you can't change that. PDF's are not plain text so
they can't be included inline in a plain text digest or the archive. If
this 'scrubbing' also occurs in individual list messages and MIME format
digests it's because the list's Non-digest options -> scrub_nondigest
setting is Yes.
