[Mailman-Users] forwarding messages from one list to another not asattachments

I'm getting confused. To clarify, in Mailman 2.1.8 content filtering terms:
we are 'filtering the content' ,
we are not 'removing message attachments that have a matching content type'
we are 'removing message attachments that don't match multipart/mixed,
multipart/alternative or text/plain',
we are removing message attachments that match exe, bat, cmd,
we are 'collapsing multipart/alternative to its first part content',
we are converting text/html parts to plain text.
is that solution 2? By the way I still don't know how to configure solution
thanks for your time
