Hi Leo, how are you? How's São Paulo? :-) Curitiba is too hot and it
doesn't seem to be winter here... ;-)

Anyway, I'm using Postfix and not Sendmail. But I think that although
I can change my mailer configuration it's Pipermail's job to do that
conversion. There are lots of broken MTAs around. 

There's another machine running qmail and ezmlm with MHonArc as it's
archiver. As you can see here
everything works fine and without any special configuration on

I was expecting it from MailMan.

Thanks! (And send Simone a kiss! ;-))
