You can BLOCK HTML and attachments by going to your Privacy page and finding the line that says: "Hold posts with header value matching a specified regexp." Put the 3 lines below in there.

Content-Type: .*multipart
Content-Type: .*mixed
Content-Type: .*rich

Again, this won't strip out the unwanted stuff but holds offending messages for approval.

Create a text message in your word processor or mail client that you can paste into the explanation box when you reject the message telling your poster that his message was rejected because he did not use plain text, and save it. You'll need this over and over.
