Please, a MIME is a terrible thing to waste on a Mailing List.

It gives the SAMBA DIGEST mode terrible indigestion, and it mails out
unreadable HEX dumps to everyone receiving the Digest mode.

Please just post a URL for this type of information to be read.

The DIGEST mode can not handle VCF, PGP, or RICH-TEXT, or any binary
Please set your mail sending to PLAIN-TEXT only when sending to unknown

Please turn VCF and PGP off unless your recipient explicitly requires them,
when not required, they simply waste space in the mail server.
