If I understand your question correctly then the answer is partly given 
in the 

* When replying to a message, markup language is disabled if the 
received message does not have the markup parameter or if the markup 
language is unknown

The reasoning for this is not given in the manual, but if the message 
received is not known to be Markdown text then it could contain 
Markdown-markup which was not intended to be markup. I have already 
noted that this could be improved such that MailMate tries to check if 
the text is safe to quote in a Markdown reply (a definition of 
“safe” is then needed).

In other words, it is probably not often a problem in practice to always 
enable Markdown, but for now MailMate simply plays it safe by always 
disabling Markdown when replying to non-Markdown messages.

You may want to consider a shorter signature for the mailing list. Just 
select it for your next message and the dynamic signatures system should 
remember it for you when posting to the mailing list in the future ;-)
