It IMPLIES that there are mulitple parts, one of which can be
text/html. The filter is picking up the message as HTML, where the next
part could be a .zip file (UUEcoded) and this is why the message is
being dumped. It was not dumped because it was HTML.
Sending attachments to a mailing list is also a big no-no. Send a text
message, put the attachment somewhere where folks can get it and then
post the message with URL.
