Blank messages from Nancy Allison

I noticed the blank messages coming from Nancy, and I noticed she's
using Verizon Webmail to send her messages to the list - she even
mentioned this explicitly in this message:

My guess is that she has managed to configure Verizon Webmail to _only_
send HTML email, and the Mailman list management software that's used
for TECHWR-L strips the HTML part and sends the (empty) text/plain
message part.

Unfortunately, I don't have access to Verizon Webmail and they don't
appear to have any online help that doesn't require a login, so I can't
even dig through and recommend how to fix the situation - but, perhaps
this will help Nancy, if she can find the appropriate configuration
setting to either send plain text to the list address, or at least send
both HTML and plain text versions of her outgoing mail.

Good luck, and godspeed! :-)
