Do you mean the MLM part of mailman or the archiver?

The only real option for the MLM is to kill attachments or even bounce 
mail with attachments (this latter can probably be done using the 
header filtering).

Pipermail (the archiver) does not handle MIME.  You can use an external 
archiver (such as MHonArc) if you need this functionality.  There may 
be future extensions to pipermail to handle MIME or there may not...

There has been substantial coverage of this subject recently on the 
users and developers lists.  Please make use of the archives for 
further information.
