Well, this is definitely not a FAQ! Being able to handle MIME encoded email (both quoted-printable enhancement to text, and binary attachments) seems to be the first thing everybody wanted to improve from version 1.

There may be cases where attachments are inappropriate for an archived list, but for my purposes they are essential. Sending anything potentially untoward to /dev/null is an interesting concept, but not one I want in an MTA. Cheers,
