one of the nicer features of the new TIG is that html message parts will be
converted to plain text (though I didn't get the chance to test this
thoroughly; we'll find out soon if it works)..  also as had been
the case for a while now certain types of attachments will be stripped.

messages coming into the tig from an address other than one that is
subscribed will be held for approval, so if you send a message from an
alternate address it won't go out to everyone until the administrator
has a chance to clear it.. the data of these alternate addresses from
the old TIG was lost so I'll have to rebuild that part of the database
incrementally over time.  there were roughly 20 of these addresses.

the tig has now been through some incarnations:
1994-1997 managed with SmartList, Procmail, and exim out of alegria.com
   Rob Lingelbach, admin 
1998-2000 managed with Mailman, Python, and exim out of alegria.com
