The FAQ section 2.2 says 

"Please make sure that your mailer is set to send ASCII or “plain text” for outgoing messages, or the equivalent for your mailer. That is, do not send HTML, rich text, VCards, winmail.dat files, or anything other than Plain Text. See http://www.expita.com/nomime.html for an excellent explanation of this matter, including instructions for configuring many types of mail software so that you do not send mail in formats that are difficult for many mailers to read."

Which bit of this is unclear? 

But you're right. We don't send error messages. Why should we?

However, it wasn't clear to me
after signing up or reading the FAQ that Statalist accepts only plain
text emails, and doesn't even send out error messages if you (or
GMail) tried to send it an HTML email.
