Mailman experts,
We are running 2.1.5 version of Mailman and I have a problem where
we are trying to send an automatic update announcement with hyper
links to a particular mailman list. It works fine if we send the
message directly to webmail or other pop clients, but all of the html
code is exposed as text when sending through a mailman list. We
basically lose our hyper links.

Is it possible to send html content through a mailman list? If so, how?

Note: Here is an example of a message we pipe through sendmail:

From: stuboard at www.beloit.edu
To: xxx at beloit.edu
Subject: [announce] Student e-Board Bi-Daily Summary
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
content-Disposition: inline

Below is a summary of the most recent messages posted to the student campus
email bulletin board. The full content of these messages can be read by
going to <a

Do not reply to this email. If you have questions: contact the ISR

    See FAQs 3.37 and 4.39, although the FAQs at 3.18 and 3.40 may also be useful.

    What are your Content filtering settings? Your message as below should
    pass through unscathed if filter_content is No or if filter_content is
    Yes, pass_mime_types includes text/html and convert_html_to_plaintext
    is No.

    This works for individual messages and for the MIME format digest. For
    the pipermail archive and plain digest, the html will still be
    scrubbed. See
