Guys, thanks for all the help on this.  I am going to try another temporary workaround but I will work on this on my test mailing list (because I need to get the problem eventually resolved) and I will let you all know.

Yes. Content filtering works recursively. If any content type part is
filtered, it is removed along with all its sub-parts. If a content
type part is not filtered, we recursively examine its sub-parts to see
if they should pe passed or filtered.

Thus, the intent of my


is to accept only text/plain parts, but to accept them no matter how
deeply they may be nested in the original MIME structure. Content
filtering will leave higer level multipart/* and message/rfc822 parts
in the message, but only those which ultimately contain a text/plain
