From the alias, or if you have the procmail trick installed, from procmail.

Demime filters all mail to the address before it is even seen by majordomo.

This is dependent on your MTA and it's security policies. Probably more
like a "cake walk" than a "piece of cake". :) If you are good at reading
and following directions, it can be an 8 or 9.
> 4. Did it work straight away? If not, what did it take to get it work
This depends on how well you followed *ALL* the directions. Yes.
> 5. Can the demime program create a plain text message from HTML?
According to the author's web page it can.
Demime's basic mode of operation is that it selects the best of alternative
parts. Failing that, it renders rich text and html alternatives to plain text.
It also renders non-alternative parts when it knows how, and it elides them
when it does not know how.

Easiest question yet...

Defining "better" is difficult. An alternative was posted here about a year
ago, but I was already happy with demime and did not try it.
