MailScanner is probably seeing it as a file with many extensions? Ever
period will show as an extension.

Subject: PDF attachment being dropped silently by MailScanner

I am running MailScanner version 4.78.17 and have an issue when an
HTML email comes in with a PDF attached.  Below is the end of the body
when the email is not sent through MailScanner.  MailScanner is
dropping off everything past the "<br><br><br><br>" line below.


Content-Type: application/pdf;
name="Tech U.S.A. Intl Trvlrs Trvlng Today.pdf"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Description: Tech U.S.A. Intl Trvlrs Trvlng Today.pdf
Content-Disposition: attachment;
filename="Tech U.S.A. Intl Trvlrs Trvlng Today.pdf"
