Dear Hypermail Folks

To get around all security problems with hypermail, I would like to simply not allow any attachments whatsoever. The documentation does not spell this out, as far as I can see. A search of the email archives found these:

Results for query "disallow all attachments"


Although there are a couple uncertain suggestions, there is no definitive word on how to disallow all attachments.

Here are a couple of the suggestions.

I *think* you can do that with "ingore_types", as I believe that accepts "wildcards"... So you can specify it to ignore all types.

I think you can accomplish what you want by using this option: text_types = *
which is designed to cause all MIME types to be treated as text/plain.

Is there a definitive method for doing this?
