Well I don't really consider it something that is *broken* - it's entirely
up to the MUA to decide how it wants to display parts.  Outlook just doesn't
display them the way you'd like.

It's not a MailScanner config issue, but you could alter the MS code pretty
simply to use multipart/report instead of multipart/digest.  Just changing
"digest" to "report" in a couple of places inside seems to be
enough to get what want (but I am NOT an expert on anything, so although it
seems to work for me, don't blame me if it causes your wife to leave you).

Tested with mozilla 1.4, outlook 2k sp3, and Imp and all of them still seem
to have no problems with the message - but Outlook then displays the inline
attachment properly.
