I mean the default conversion from HTML to plain text is done by the command

/usr/bin/lynx -dump %(filename)s

On all the mailman 2.1 installations that I manage, this is changed to

/usr/bin/links -dump %(filename)s


/usr/bin/elinks -dump %(filename)s

because I like the output from (e)links better although it's very
similar. It just has less extraneous white space.

Both (e)links and lynx deal with URLs by displaying the text along with
a reference to a footnote containing the actual URL. I don't know how
they deal with an <img ...> tag referencing an included image by
Content-ID, but whatever they do may or may not be satisfactory in your
situation. You just have to try it and see.
