    Major Major is a (free) mailing list processor. It takes messages sent
    to a mailing list, and distributes them to the list members. The
    features include support for several different languages (including
    different languages for different lists), support for moderated lists,
    an option to remove attachments, ability to add spam filters, and a
    number of other features.

    The latest version can be downloaded from
    or from
    or from Hobbes incoming.

    The new feature is correct handling of HTML messages with plain text
    leader and/or trailer text added. This turned out to be trickier than
    expected, but I think I have finally tested all possibilities.

    Existing MM users whose lists use only plain text will see just one
    change: for a plain text message with attachments, and a list with
    "remove attachments" specified, the resulting message will have type multipart/mixed. I tried to get the obvious text/plain result in this
    case, but it turns out that that required a two-pass approach to move
    MIME headers to an earlier point in the message. The resulting code was
    so complex that I decided to go for readable code rather than minimal
    MIME structure.

    This version also fixes a long-standing bug: a 30-minute delay in
    responding to a Ctrl/C from the keyboard!
