It appears you use S/MIME to send signed messages. Those are useless  
to list software anyway, as the list message at the end of the mail  
invalidates the signature, but the filter you bumped into is the  
filter that stops attachments from going on the list - and that is a  
good thing.

I think intended behaviour should be to strip off signatures  
silently, and attachments noisily, but I can live with the current  
behaviour. For now just remember to switch off your signatures when  
sending to the list.
