I hear you and I agree, in a perfect world. But we don't live in a per-
fect world. We live in a world where HTML editing is the default for
many stupid e-mail clients, we live in a world where most users will
never see anything but Outlook Express and think they have the hottest
e-mail client on the planet.

So, my question sort of remains the same I suppose.. is there a way to
get Mailman to handle this properly?
