[Mailman-Users] Setting MIME as default for new Non-Digest subscribers

This question from Jan 2005 is still a problem.  All the addresses I 
load into mailman end up with a check in the "plain" box when listed 
under membership management.  I seem to recall (from years ago) a config 
choice for new non-digest subscribers to force plain format, but it's 
not in the 2.1.14 version.

The current admin manual does not address (that I can find) what effect 
the plain check box has on non-digest subscribers.  If there is no 
effect, perhaps I can contribute some text to explain what happens--when 
I know.
