Unfortunately, no.

You can try using the other field, where you specify the attachment 
types you will allow.  All others will be stripped.

You could also do attachment stripping inside your MTA, or in another 
program that gets called by your MTA before it calls Mailman.  There are 
programs with names like "demime" and "stripmime" which might be helpful
