FAQ
For some reason our archive web pages try to display attachments inline
instead of displaying a link to download the attachment. If I
understand correctly, this process is called "scrubbing." From what
I've read the default behavior is to scrub attachments in the archives,
but it is not on mine. This is pretty much a fresh, standard mailman
(version 2.1.5-9ubuntu4.1) install on Ubuntu Dapper.

Any help would be appreciated :)

    Mailman doesn't scrub all attachments. It scrubs most, but not those
    with type text/plain and a specified character set.

    What is the MIME Content-Type: header of the attachments that aren't
    scrubbed?

    Also note that uuencoded data in a text/plain part is not an
    attachment, even though some MUAs treat it as one, and it won't be
    scrubbed.

    They have all been pdf files. Will it not scrub pdf files? I don't
    exactly know what the

    "MIME Content-Type:" is.

    For purposes of the scrubber, "MIME Content-Type:" is the value of the
    Content-Type: header of the respective MIME message part.

    PDF attachments should be scrubbed. They normally are Content-Type:
    application/pdf, but any Content-Type: other than text/plain should
    result in their being scrubbed in the archive.

    Are other attachment types being scrubbed (or are PDF attachments the
    only ones you get on your list)?

    Can you provide a URL of an archive message that has this problem?

    James provided access in an off list reply. It turns out that this is
    the same Mailman 2.1.5 scrubber issue as discussed in the "Attachments
    - archives and encoding problems" thread at
    <http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/2007-May/056923.html>.
    According to the resolution in that thread, upgrade to Mailman 2.1.9
    solves the problem.
