This only affects messages which are held for moderation and still
waiting moderator action after max_days_to_hold days.

For a list of possible reasons for this, see

The most likely reason is the message is HTML only and Mailman's content
filtering does not accept HTML. Note that if pass_mime_types is
non-empty, convert_html_to_plaintext is only effective if text/html is
included in pass_mime_types.
