I found out what is causing the problem with mail list archiving.
It is profligate use of ridiculous attachements like VCARDs and
TNEF. These are almost always sent by a Windows system or mail server,

with Internet standards. And I *am* going to start bouncing all HTML
mail as soon as I can write a reliable filter.
