I should have asked whether the filter_content setting was yes or no
too.  If it's no, then the pass_mime_types setting won't come into
play (I believe, hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong).

Anyway, I just created a test list on a system running mailman 2.1.5
and left all settings at the defaults.  Then I posted several messages
signed with and without attachments using OpenPGP/MIME.  I had no
trouble receiving the messages and verifying the pgp signatures.

Does the message show up in the list archives?  What happens if you
open the list mbox in mutt?

In my test list the message body and attachment got scrubbed from the
archives, but came through to the list intact.  I'd have to search a
bit to see what settings need to be changed to get the archiver to
work right with these messages, but I believe it can be done.  (Mark
probably knows exactly how, perhaps he'll jump in with some wisdom.)

I don't mind arguing with myself. It's when I lose that it bothers me.
