Need filter for Postfix: MIME headers, multipart, etc

There are several sites out there that 'describe' mime_header_checks, but no actual examples on how to allow MIME headers, multipart messages, HTML embedded e-mails, etc.

So does anyone have a good example site, tutorial or even had problems like this in the past?

MIME headers, multipart messages, HTML embedded e-mails are allowed by default already.

Can you explain what you actually need to know?

When a user tries to send an email out, multipart and text/html headers are getting 'lost' while regular text e-mails are getting through fine. Postfix server is configured to use SSL for incoming/client use and TLS for outgoing (which is a requirement as these e-mails have encrypted data embedded in them).

Probably getting caught in someones spam filter.
Check the logs on each server it hops through.

Determined that since there was no rDNS setting in the primary DNS, it was failing some SMTP sites reverse IP address lookups, thus being denied delivery.
