Sure, under the hood this is just an ssh login, most likely. However,
I wouldn't bet on it being "hugely useful", as these days most Mailman
list owners share a Mailman site using cPanel or similar, and don't
have shell access at all. *Very* useful in beta test, though.

Aargh. HTML mail is a tool of the devil. It is not a hacker's
friend, it makes life annoying for filtering and automatic mail
processing. When you get ~250 wanted mails (many of them list, of
course) and ~1000 spams (that get past the 6-sigma "if this filter
thinks it's spam, throw it away!" filter) a day, automatic processing
is really important.
Unfortunately I don't have a copy of your original, but what may be
happening is not at GMail, but rather that the mailing list tries
pretty hard to avoid HTML mail, throwing away the text/html part if
there's a text/plain alternative, and otherwise running it through an
HTML-to-text converter (probably Lynx with output to a file).
It could also just be my local MUA, which I have set up to try to
minimize the HTML mail that I see.
Mark can probably say with some confidence.
