In the mailman admin screen, there is a page that says 'Privacy 

Within that screen, down near the bottom is a field that says:

   "Hold posts with header value....."

In that field, you can put a list of values. Here's what I have:

   Content-Type: text\/html
   Content-Type: .*multipart\/alternative
   Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

That will block  alot of crap from making it to the mailing list.
Unfortunately, it results in the message being held for moderator 
approval, and with the volume of mail that comes in, It's hard to keep 
up with it.
