I had a similar problem long ago and it was a problem with Apache (or
rather with my Linux distro - since apache was using the distro's mime file
to determine what the mime types were.

Good Luck - gotta run - Jon

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Attachment Rendering problems


We use Mailman-2.1b3 here. There is a problem with archives
vis-a-vis the rendering of attachments. I will explain the
situation with an example. For a list named cc-issues, the
following happens:

a) The attachments are scrubbed and strored in separate

b) The URL generated is correct as far as UNIX path is concerned. In this 
example, it is:

When the URL is clicked, the Apache server marks the content-type
as "text/html" instead of "application/postscript". As a result, the
whole PS file is dumped as text on the broswer window.

c) If the URL is changed to:


everything works as it should.

I dont know where to look. Is it a mailman problem or apache problem ? Can
somebody please help me out ??
