Setup: Debian AMD64 (mixed testing/stable)
Exim 4.62 (exim-daemon-heavy)
Mailman 2.1.8 compiled from source, non-std debian policy install
Per domain independent installation of mailman in
/var/virtual/$domain/mailman/...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

According to exim's logs a message sent out on 3/09/2006 was accepted,
delivered to two offsite recipients with a local list in an independent
mailman install for an exim virtual domain.

The message is plain text with a PDF attachment (letters, space and
underscores in filename), sender uses authenticated SMTP and our exim logs
are rather verbose in this regard. They show exim accepting the message,
delivering offsite but no delivery to Mailman. Additionally Mailman logs
only what what is included below for the same time period.

The critical issue was proving the message was sent [done] but a more
concerning issue is why it didn't reach Mailman at all.

Require_explicit_destination is OFF
Maximum_num_recipients is 50
Mail headers: TO: address1 at domain, address2 at domain
CC: listname at mmdomain
FROM: us at ourdomain
REPLY-TO: listname at mmdomain

The logs below seem greek to me so any assistance in figuring out what they
mean would be appreciated.
(I promise I won't give the 3rd degree at to rationale - <chuckles>)

I'm afraid I don't know what I'm looking for otherwise FAQ & Google would be
more useful. Other messages with PDF attachments go through fine to other
domains and with variations -- just not repeat tries of this same instance.

    http://rfc.net/rfc2231.html gives me an idea of possible problems but no
    solutions.
