First, you should start a new message when creating a new topic. This 
message is put in the same thread as a completely unrelated post, since 
you hit reply to that post.

What do you have for Deliver Cleaned Messages? I believe if that is set 
to yes, it will strip out offending attachments and send the message on. 
So you should have that set to no.

I would guess you are going to FP on HTML mail, but that is your choice.
