Hi David. Thank you for managing the list.

I understand that for some list members, bandwidth and/or storage are a
problem, and that is why all attachments are scrubbed. Personally, I would
prefer to just receive the images as normal attachments. Neither bandwidth
nor storage are issues for me, and the need to follow all the scrubbed
links individually is tedious. I have also noticed the scrubbing only
produces links to images when the images are included in specific ways. In
other cases, they seem to simply be removed from the emails, which has
seemed to discourage some of the list members from even trying to send them
in the first place.

Does the server software you are using provide a way for list members to
configure their attachment handling preferences on an individual basis? It
seems like it might be preferable for some of us to receive attachments and
inline images normally, while others receive the scrubbed emails, if this
is possible.
