A common misconception is that this and other lists requirements 
are set according to a supposed lowest-common-denominator of
technological standards. 

I am afraid that you are rather stuck with flawed technology. One
could possibly imagine that given a large enough number of 
dissatisfied users, your sysadmin might open up his eyes. And if not,
then why not use a private account and a decent mail user agent?

This is nothing personal, but I imagine not being alone to be
bothered with winmail attachements and other obscure features that 
are not desirable, as clearly stated in the list's FAQ.
