Don't know about the first one.  But this one I might can shed some light

vcards have the Content-Type: text/x-vcard

So it should be as easy as adding 'text/x-vcard' to 'pass_mime_types' on the
'Content Filtering' page using mailman 2.1.  mailman 2.0 doesn't have
content filtering.

The other types (.dat, etc..) you'll just have to figure out the
Content-Type.  I only have outlook express 6 to test with.
