That helps if you're trying to block everything except plain text, right?
IIRC, Paul was trying to get Mailman to accept html posts but not
attachments.  He wasn't trying to block all but plain text (he knows how to
do that :)).

I'm not starting up the plain text vs. html argument, that's a very dead
horse.  No matter our personal opinions, there are valid reasons for
wanting to set your own lists to accept html posts and still not accept
attachments (I figure your lists, your rules, whatever floats your boat
:)).  The Mailman options make it appear that it ought to be possible to
configure a list to allow html but not attachments but doing that as Paul
and I have tried doesn't work.
