Excellent idea Norbert.

I can't speak for others but I'm certain a great many Mailman users must be in
the same position as myself. My host runs and maintains Mailman. Hence most
topics on this list tend to be inapplicable.

I had been hoping to see answers to questions such as:

1.  Using the Mailman Web interface, all I and others have access to, how do we
create a newsletter list i.e. I'm the only poster, everyone else being a

2.  How can I apply strip mime selectively to my news group list? Other people
with my host using Mailman want to retain the HTML feature.

My problem principally is that with our news group [separate from 1 above], many
subscribers use their place of employment [work related topics] to receive email
and, those work places complain loudly about receiving HTML mail and bounce it.
