Carriage returns removed from text files

Using MailScanner 4.50.14 + Sendmail + Spamassassin
A user sends a properly formatted text file (paragraphed etc) as an
attachment to an email. The receiver gets the email with the attachment, but
the text file has been reformatted. All of the carriage returns are removed,
and replaced with rectangle-like symbols, and all of the text appears on a
single line. This happens with every single text file I have tried.
I've tried removing users from the content scanning in the hope that this is
what is causing the issues, but nothing works.
Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?
