	Nope.  There is no general method of turning a MIME-formatted 
message into a plain-text message without MIME formatting (although 
some tools try), and things get really nasty when you try to add or 
change stuff as part of that process.

	You can configure Mailman to strip out all MIME bodypart types 
except certain limited ones that are considered acceptable by the 
recipients, and you can get Mailman to do HTML->text conversion, but 
that's about it.
