Actually, I think I answered that too quickly. The issue is probably
because that FAQ is only aimed at passing HTML. if you set
pass_mime_types as suggested in that FAQ you will remove all PDFs and
images and other non  - plain text/HTML attachments. Note that its title
is "How do I preserve HTML formatting while filtering other content?"

If you want to pass other things in addition to plain and HTML text you
have to add their mime types to pass_mime_types as I indicated in my
first reply.
