It's hard to say what you're doing wrong, since you didn't tell us what you 
did, only that things aren't working as you expected.

1) In MailScanner.conf, what is "Virus Scanners =" set to?

2) what do you mean by "bad attachment, size wrong"? Be specific. It sounds 
at casual glance like you're testing with a corrupted message. If it's so 
heavily corrupted that the size is wrong, I doubt any mailclient will 
decode it, nor will MailScanner.
