 I think you can accomplish what you want by using this option:

 text_types = *

which is designed to cause all MIME types to be treated as text/plain. I've done a few tests, and haven't found a way to get arbitrary html tags past it, but I don't understand that part of the code well enough to offer anything resembling a guarantee.  The result is ugly enough in many cases that I would be reluctant to make it the default. It appears that the main change that is needed is conspicuous documentation of the risks of using hypermail in combination with SSI. I will make some changes along those lines soon.
