wrong?

    [Moderator note: The attached file, stripped by content filtering, was
    a TIFF image of what appears to be an Apple Mail view of a message
    with 8 MIME parts shown as attachments and the only thing displayed
    inline was the msg_footer.]


    What you will see when you view this message with an MUA (mail client)
    depends on the particular MUA. See the FAQ at
    <http://wiki.list.org/x/84A9> for some more insight.

    I am guessing you may have a msg_header defined for your list that
    appears empty but actually contains some whitespace, and since your
    original post was MIME multipart, Mailman just added the msg_header as
    the first MIME part and your MUA sees this initial text/plain part as
    the message body and then the subsequent parts as attachments.

    In order to say anything more definitive we would need to see the "raw
    message source" (option-command-U in apple mail) for this message. You
    could remove most of the content of the various parts, but we need to
    see the all the MIME headers and boundaries for all the message parts.

    http://www.mycoachonline.com/emailsource.html

    Which I downloaded and viewed with both TBird and Apple Mail and I see
    an HTML defined page and the message footer. I don't see any problem,
    and I don't see anything like the 8 MIME parts that showed in the
    original screenshot.

    The above file is exactly what I expect. A text/html message was posted
    to the list and mailman sent this as a multipart/mixed message with
    the original text/html as the first part and a text/plain part
    containing the msg_footer as the second part.

    I am sending Wayne my screen shots off list.
