Well, the list uses Mailman (2.1.5 to be exact) so it's possible to
strip certain MIME types from incoming email automatically.  However,
I'm not sure I want to do that for a help list.  Yes, it's very annoying
to get HTML mail but... it is a help list after all.  Some mail clients
(like lookOut!) make it extremely difficult to send plain text mail and
I don't like to exclude people from help because they made a poor choice
in mail clients.

There is a postop "convert HTML to plaintext" option that I could
use... not sure if that would help or not.

I find these equally distasteful, not the least because they're utterly
useless from a legal standpoint; however, often these are added on by
the corporate MTA, completely out of the control of the author of the

Sad but true.
