An answer is "hidden" in the FAQ on the Mailman 2.1 info site...
(to add some additional information... the idea is to put one of these
mentioned scripts into the /etc/aliases, so they strip attachments before
they arrive at the list)

Q. My users hate HTML in their email and for security reasons, I want to
strip out all MIME attachments. How can I do this?
A. Mailman 2.1 will probably have this feature built-in, but for now you
can use add-on tools such as demime or stripmime. More information on
these tools can be found at:

(Stripmime) http://www.phred.org/~alex/stripmime.html.

(Demime) http://scifi.squawk.com/demime.html.
