So you are allowing only text/plain parts that are either a text/plain
message or a text/plain sub-part of a multipart/mixed or

Irrelevant because you only accept the text/plain alternative in the

Irrelevant again because you don't accept text/html.

You don't accept text/html.
I suggest what you want in pass_mime_types is
This will accept all text plain parts and text/html parts, even from
attached message/rfc822 parts. Then multipart/alternative parts will
be collapsed to the first (probably text/plain) alternative, and any
remaining text/html parts will be converted to plain text by lynx or
whatever you set in mm_cfg.py for HTML_TO_PLAIN_TEXT_COMMAND.
If you also want to accept signed messages, you probably want to add
to the above list.
