Summary: Changing content filtering settings produces no changes

Initial Comment:
Hi,

I am running a highly moderated closed list, and I 
need my users to be able to send HTML mail and 
attachments back and forth.

I've tried changing the settings under the 'Content 
filtering' section, but changing them seems to have 
no effect whatsoever.

Here are my current settings:
filter_content = no
filter_mime_types = [empty]
pass_mime_types = [empty]
filter_filename_extensions = [empty]
pass_filename_extensions = [empty]
collapse_alternatives = yes
convert_html_to_plaintext = no
filter_action = preserve

I've tried all sorts of different combinations based 
on different 'solutions' that I found on the web, but 
none have worked.  The attachment in my test message 
that keeps being removed is a V-card file (.vcf); 
I've tried adding 'vcf' to pass_filename_extensions, 
but still, the attachment is stripped.

Please help!!!  Let me know what config files you 
need to see and I'll get back to you within hours.

Thanks,

Justin Harper

If filter_content is set to 'no', Mailman does no content
filtering.

Other things which Mailman does that may affect the MIME
structure of the message are adding msg_header and/or
msg_footer and scrubbing messages as controlled by
scrub_nondigest.

If the .vcf attachment is being removed and filter_content
and scrub_nondigest are both 'no', I think it is not Mailman
that's removing it.

What is your mailman version?  The above settings works just
fine for me on my latest version (2.1.9rc1) installation.
