Actually... Most mailing list servers I know of barf when handed mime
attachments, HTML, or anything else cute that isn't in the RFCs. I don't
know about what onelist.com does, but majordomo, listproc and listserv
*all* have problems with mime and HTML. Running a mailing list on a
Windows based machine gets pretty painful too, because the automation
just isn't there. I think the only thing that's even close to competent
is Pegasus Mail.
