I changed this to allow EML files (I had tried without luck adding define('ALLOW_UNFILTERED_UPLOADS', true); in config.php) and this plugin did the trick. All those negative reviews are appalling...the plugin is well-written and it works, the author has gone thru great lengths to offer you a GUI to change this so you won't have to get your hands dirty with hooks. Thank you dev for taking the time to make this available to us.

Seems like a good plugin. However, my goal was to add GPX files (aka .gpx) to my media. On that, this plug-in doesn't work. I'd love it if this plugin made it possible to upload gpx files to my media.

Initially, I installed this plugin but still couldn't upload the file types I needed. Eventually, with assistance from WordPress Support, we figured that you need to upload the files directly into the media library, and then attach them to the page. Trying to upload files directly on to a page doesn't work. Once you figure that out, the plugin works great!
