What do all the report attachments say?
(i.e. what the attachments are replaced with)
That will give you some clue as to why they are being removed.

It's the report lines in the middle of the replacement attachment that 
will tell you what's going on. Also read your /var/log/maillog and see 
what it is telling you about the attachments.

Come back to us once you have got that information, and once you have 
looked for those strings in the /etc/MailScanner directory.
