my platform is Mailman 2.1.4 running on Solaris 7 integrated with Exim 4.
I notice a annoying facet of the installation. Mail for the
list-administrators (e.g. request to action subscriptions) are being sent
by mailman to to addresses list-owner at domain. List-owner at domain is a
requred address for mailman - but I would expect that mailman would expand
the address to the actual real email of the administrator9s) rather than
send them to list-owner. The effect of not doing this is: after the mail
is sent to the address it re-enters mailman where is is (correctly)
recognised as a bounce. This bounced message is then correctly sent to the
list admins (but presumably only because I have the option to sent the
bounces to the admin set - otherwise I wouldn't see the requests). Can
anyone advise me on what I need to do get mail to sent the administrative
messages to the actual admins first time round?

    We just upgraded to Mailman 2.1.4 and have turned on the "convert
    html to plain text" option.

    Since then, some list members are getting some of their messages as
    .txt attachments.

    The body of the text and the footer come as two separate attachments.

    Any ideas about what is causing this and how to turn it off?
