Thank you, Mark, for all your responses. I had originally thought I should have the list be able to convert to plain text, but then decided it would be ok to let messages go through as html. But I still wanted it to strip attachments.
I added text/html to the list, and set the bottom two things to "no" and now it is working -- I received the whole message with html, with no funny complaints about not being allowed, and it successfully stripped the test pdf and doc attachments I sent.
