Hi folks, I am not very technically inclined and I'm the co- listkeeper for a group. We have had some problems lately and we were wondering
what would happen if we made changes to the Content Filtering section of the Admin page?

If :
were removed would the listkeepers, as owners of the group receive bounces from everyone who tried to send formatted text?

If these two lines were changed from "Yes" to "No" what would happen?

Should Mailman collapse multipart/alternative to its first part content?  No Yes X<http://lists.oso-aa.org/mailman/admin/grow/?VARHELP=contentfilter/collapse_alternatives>

Should Mailman convert text/html parts to plain text? This conversion happens after MIME attachments have been stripped. No Yes X

Examples of our current problem:

1.This    at the end of every sentence & inserted in several places in sentences:
Louise can't get email.  

2. One continuous paragraph arrives when the sender had made appropriate paragraphs

3. Complete gibberish:

Are these  problems caused by many people now using cell phones & tablets to send email?

Thank you for your patience & any help you might provide.
