Yes, and you need to set it to 3, BUT read the comment in Defaults.py
about this and think long and hard about it before doing this.

3 - Remove text/html as attachments but don't HTML-escape them. Note:
    this is very dangerous because it essentially means anybody can send
    an HTML email to your site containing evil JavaScript or web bugs,
    or other nasty things, and folks viewing your archives will be
    susceptible.  You should only consider this option if you do heavy
    moderation of your list postings.
