FAQ
Perhaps I've missed this in the doc's (but I don't think so).

How can I configure Mailman to convert an HTML post into plain text?

When a member post from Hotmail or Yahoo in HTML format I end up with a
.html attachment and two .txt attachments (for the list header and
footer) which makes it very difficult to read messages on portable
devices.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Bill Suarez

    The official "List Administration Manual" at
    <http://www.list.org/mailman-admin/index.html> is incomplete. It
    effectively stops at section "2.9 The Archiving Options Category"
    (URL: <http://www.list.org/mailman-admin/node26.html>), and what
    you're looking for would be covered in section "2.12 The Content
    Filtering Category".

    The updated version of this manual is being worked on, and what's
    been done so far can be found at
    <http://wiki.list.org/display/DOC/Mailman+2.1+List+Administrators+Manual>.

    Go to the web admin page for your list. Go to the "Content
    Filtering" section. Scroll down to the bottom, and where it says
    "... convert text/html parts to plain text?", you make sure that the
    radio button is set to "Yes". If not, set it to "Yes", then click
    the "Submit Your Changes" button at the bottom of the page.

    Hopefully, this will solve your problem.
