Scrubbed attachments are stored in the directory
archives/private/<listname>/attachments. In most cases, they are just
the original attachment (decoded from the MIME
Content-Transfer-Encoding:), but in the case of scrubbed HTML parts,
the format depends on the mm_cfg.py setting of ARCHIVE_HTML_SANITIZER.

The default is to store HTML attachments 'HTML escaped' which means
things like <, > and & are replaced with &lt;, &gt; and &amp;
respectively so that opening the attachment in a web browser shows
effectively the source HTML rather than the rendered page.
