Just got majordomo configured on our new BSD box and it's doing something funny (not ha ha funny, peculiar funny.) We have a list for the office and any message that has an attachment does not come through. Now eventually we will configure it to strip all attachments to prevent the spreading of viruses that way, but I'd like to know why it's doing this all the same. Here are the maillog entries for one with attachments.

And it just ends there. The ones without attachments go through and end with (Message queued).
