This is correct as far as it goes, but it is generally tricky because
the settings are not necessarily intuitive.

For example, simply putting text/plain in pass_mime_types would not
pass the message from Sasa to which I'm replying because that message
as sent to the mailman-users list was of type multipart/signed with
subparts of type text/plain and application/pgp-signature, and if
multipart or multipart/signed is not in pass_mime_types, the entire
message will be filtered.

for some further information.
