Check your MailScanner.conf file and make sure you have this option set
to "no"

    Convert HTML To Text = no

You might wish to check on this setting, although that has some dangers.
    Convert Dangerous HTML To Text = no

Also check that your "Spam Actions" is not set to "striphtml".

Another group of options to check is to see if any of the following are
set to "disarm". Be aware that disabling these may not be the most
secure thing to do. Consider each based on what you expect to receive.
    Allow IFrame Tags
    Allow Form Tags
    Allow Script Tags
    Allow WebBugs
    Allow Object Codebase Tags
