WPCF7 incorporates more filters than used in the answer you already found.

Analogously to that, the wpcf7_posted_data filter should do what you are looking for:

function wpse73667_wpcf7_posted_data( $posted_data )
    $posted_data = do_shortcode( $posted_data );
    return $posted_data;
add_filter( 'wpcf7_posted_data', 'wpse73667_wpcf7_posted_data' );

Note that this is an educated guess and untested.

You can find all the filters available by searching the %plugins_directory%/contact-form-7/includes/classes.php file for the term apply_filters.
