Thanks, Brad.  I guess I'll have to upgrade to 2.1 to get that feature.

	See the archives.  This is actually a more difficult problem than 
you imagine, for a variety of technical reasons.

	The short answer is that if you go into "Content Filtering", and 
click on the button "Should Mailman filter the content of list 
traffic according              to the settings below?" and set it to 
"Yes" and you don't change anything else, then mailman should go 
ahead and strip most things you're likely to see (by default, it will 
only pass messages that are plain text, or MIME bodypart types 
multipart/mixed, multipart/alternative, or text/plain), and it will 
strip text/html to plain text.
