+1 more.  This is the best way to go, IMHO.  I manage several lists with
Majordomo, and I bounce all email with attachments, be they images, HTML,
or whatever.  I use the following in my mailing list config to do it:

	taboo_headers       <<  END
	/^Content-Type: multipart.*/


I don't know what the mailman equivalent is, but that should give you an
idea.  :)

I read email on a console (ssh connection to my mailserver, actually), and
although I have my mailcap set up to allow me to read HTML via Lynx, I
still prefer good old text email, and I believe it's inappropriate to send
HTML email to a mailing list anyway.

Just my 2c worth.  :)
