I agree, but I think this is a discussion that should happen. There
are Ubuntu mailing lists (and mailing lists elsewhere online) these
days where attachments are considered acceptable so having a unified
policy for our team and letting everyone know about that will help.

There are other admins, but currently there is no way for anyone
(leader of the project or not) to apply for these positions, and
discussion about adding more admins has been immediately halted, in
spite of complaints about mails being stuck in the queue for hours and
no way to contact admins aside from sending yet another email. I think
this is where the frustration that is evident from the logs stems

Now that we have a leadership structure in place and regular meetings
to discuss things like this I think it's a perfect time to go through
our resources (mailing list, launchpad, access to the website) and
develop processes for people to volunteer for these positions to
lessen the burden on current admins and give others in the project
opportunities to fill these roles.
