Here's one suggestion.

filter_content: Yes

filter_mime_types: empty


filter_filename_extensions: default (it doesn't matter much with the
   above in pass_mime_types)

pass_filename_extensions: empty

collapse_alternatives: Yes

convert_html_to_plaintext: Yes

This will ensure only plain text is delivered to the list and will
accept essentially all text/plain parts of a message and in addition
will accept HTML that is not a multipart/alternative sub-part and use
an external command (defaults to lynx) to convert the HTML to plain

It will break or remove signatures from some signed mail.
