Bug Description

As some mail clients add previous messages to email as html attachments, an option to remove (or scramble) e-mail adresses from these would be nice.

I don't understand this request. It appears to be a request to remove or obscure email addresses from quotes of prior posts in replies to the list, but if this is the case, wouldn't the quoted information also appear in plain text parts, so why reference only HTML.

Also, in most if not all cases, wouldn't the information have already appeared in a prior post to the list, so what purpose is served by obfuscating it only when the prior post is quoted in a subsequent reply.

Another possible approach is to use Mailman's content filtering to remove HTML parts entirely.

As you can see e-mail adresses are obscured in message but not in attachment.
