ifmail -l <number> (or ifnews -l number).

1 is the default. 0 can be sued by not real gateways but nodes using
ifmail and wanting to have less ^aRFC- kludges.
-1 can be used to remove almost all; but it is really not a good idea.
(but can be useful in some case; eg sending mail to a stupid areafix)
2 uses plain text instead of kludges and keep everything; it may be a good
choice between two ifmail as all the rfc headers are kept.
