The system is not foolproof, but that is the way it is set up.

This has probably already been considered, but has the list maintainer
checked out all the options available in the mailing list software to
handle attachments? I know that some such software allows you to
completely ban attachments, as well as formatted messages. People will
get the message quickly if all of their attempts to post formatted
messages / attachments are completely rejected.

The Statalist FAQ is totally explicit.
In section 2.2,
"We ask you not to post formatted messages or attachments. In fact, Statalist software may trap these formatted messages or attachments without sending an error message to you. Please make sure that your mailer is set to "Plain Text" for outgoing messages (or the equivalent for your mailer); that is, do not send HTML, Rich Text, VCards, winmail.dat files, other attachments, or anything other than Plain Text."
And again in section 3.
"Please do not include attachments. Many members have mailers that cannot handle them. In any case, attachments can spread viruses and clog up mailers with unwanted large files."

If anyone has any suggestions about how this could made
clearer, do please let me know.
