I'd be more surprised if your ISP would refuse to do it.  Stripping MIME 
off mailing list destined posts makes everyone's life easier.  It helps 
ensure that the list can't be used to spread a virus, it helps ensure that 
unsubscribe requests are processed, etc.  It's not that hard to install, 
and it's a huge value-add for the ISP.

The only reason they would refuse to do it is if the benefits weren't made 
clear enough when you ask.
