As it left here it, like approximately all my mail, had

Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

and the copy I got back through the list had the
Content-Transfer-Encoding: header moved to the end of the headers, but
still had the other two headers untouched - so the list isn't stripping
them. I have no idea why/how your copy got mangled.

The C-T-E header presumably got moved because software re-encoded the
message; the list copy I got ended its headers with

X-MIME-Autoconverted: from 8bit to quoted-printable by id iAL2n2OQ082278
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
X-MIME-Autoconverted: from quoted-printable to 8bit by Sparkle.Rodents.Montreal.QC.CA id VAA22655

My signature doesn't say I'm a proponent of ASCII mail. It says I'm
an..err..conponent? Or whatever the antonym of `proponent' is..of HTML
mail. The "ASCII" in it refers to the ribbon ascii-graphic, not to the
content of any email.
