Blocking Attachments on a Listserv

Viruses often come as attachments to email messages. By blocking attachments for your list, you can avoid spreading viruses to your list members. Also, attachments can be quite large which can be a nuisance with a slow dial-up connection. Of course, you give up the benefit of sharing via attachments.

Two headers can be added to your list to control attachments:

  • Attachments= No,filter will remove mime attachments before delivering the  note.
  • Language= Nohtml will remove any html attachments before delivering the note.

The following lines are added often:

Attachments= No,filter
Language= Nohtml
Sizelim= 250
