This question from Jan 2005 is still a problem. All the addresses I load into mailman end up with a check in the "plain" box when listed under membership management. I seem to recall (from years ago) a config choice for new non-digest subscribers to force plain format, but it's not in the 2.1.14 version.
The current admin manual does not address (that I can find) what effect the plain check box has on non-digest subscribers. If there is no effect, perhaps I can contribute some text to explain what happens--when I know.
QUESTIONS: In order to avoid having to manually change this option for each existing subscriber, is there a way to force all existing subscribers to receive MIME in Non-Digest mode?
If not, is there a way to force all NEW subscribers to be enrolled with MIME as their default?
Also, is there a way to "lock" the MIME switch on, so that users who try to change their option to plain text will be prevented from doing so?
Your questions are not relevant to what you are doing. To send MIME format messages to non-digest subscribers you just post that format to the list and either turn off content filtering or adjust the content filtering to pass what you want.
