[Mailman-Users] Content filtering

We have some mailing lists that need to remove all types of attachments
(whatever plain text or non-plain text) from the messages. We don't allow
users to post the emails with attachments on these mailing lists.

I have looked at FAQ 1.8 and 4.13. I also searched the archive of the
Mailman user mailing list. I found that I could remove the MIME with HTML,
Word or some other content types. But I didn't find the answer to remove
attachments of the plain text file. Do you or other people know how to
resolve it?
Thanks for your help!

	Go to the Mailman FAQ Wizard at 
<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py>.  Look at FAQ 1.8 and 
4.13, but you should also search for "attachment".
