Possible to scrub HTML mail?

Would it be possible to somehow change all mail on this list to plain
text? All HTML mail that I get has the little tag on the end as an
attachment, and on some systems, the e-mail scanner spends a lot of time
on them.

Or do people actually like HTML mail on mailing lists?

I’ll second that.

Some people, I’m forced to conclude, run software that permits nothing
else.
Others are completely unaware of what their software does and the cost
to
others of using it.

But at the very least, a sanitizer that strips ‘attachments’ such as
HTML
mail would also strip malware and some classes of spam and so, in my
not-so-humble opinion should be mandatory on all mailing lists.

Certainly the large list handlers like YahooGroups have this capability.

Done. Of course, if you use Thunderbird you can set it only display the
messages in plain text format.
