>From your description above, I believe you are seeing both the
text/plain and text/html parts of a multipart/alternative message. There
are several ways to deal with this.
1)If you have a good, MIME aware MUA, set your digest type to MIME.
2)Train list posters to post only plain text (generally not possible,
but see <http://www.expita.com/nomime.html>).
3) Set the list's filter_content to Yes and either put things like
in pass_mime_types, or if you want to accept HTML only messages, set
collapse_alternatives to Yes.
