What happens if you use any other mail client?

For some reason, when some senders send a PDF file as an attachment, the email comes through but there is no attachment. In Outlook, there is the little paperclip icon on the message indicating there is an attachment, but alas the attachment isn't there. There is also no notice from MailScanner that anything happened to it.
