Thanks for your suggestions.
Unfortunately, changes such as these will break the i18n translations
of these messages in all 37 existing translations. I don't think the
need for these changes justifies doing that.
Further, your suggested "Pass message attachments that match a listed
content type. Leave this field blank to skip this filter test."
wording seems ambiguous to me as it doesn't say what happens to parts
that don't match. Are they removed unbconditionally or does their
removal depend on other settings? If I were going to make a change, I
think it would need to be more like "Pass message attachments that
match a listed content type and remove all others. Leave this field
blank to skip this filter test."
