The sysadmins have made a good decision, IMHO, in using MHonArc rather
than pipermail for archiving lists.  Why?  pipermail has historically
been a huge load on hosts I've run.  In any case, you definitely won't
be able to change the setting in the mailman front-end.  You'll likely
have to ask the GNU sysadmins to look into it for you.

I'm sure you'ld have to base64 encode the attachment and tell mailman to
accept application/octet-stream for the list before archiving it
(perhaps not a good idea, given the worms and viruses floating about).
Still, that doesn't affect how MHonArc displays the attachment once it
does make it to the archive.
