Our organization uses Netscape 4.x for email. The problem is the vCard
to messages that are posted to <listname>-request@...... Below is a paste of
message that I get when sending these requests. And yes, if I turn off vCards,
it does not give me the error messages. Just wondering if there is a workaround

MM2.1's mail command processor is MIME aware now.  We can
now close the oldest bug in the database.  Yee haw! :)

MailCommandHandler should be MIME aware, and refuse to parse any part that isn't text/* type.  Since vCards are text/x-vcard type, MailCommandHandler should additionally have a list of text/* subtypes that are ignored.
