Just to be sure I understand, you are saying that attachments were
scrubbed (stored elsewhere and replaced with a link) from individual
messages sent to non-digest subscribers. If this was the case in your
2.1.4, you must have had a local patch to do it which was 'removed'
when you upgraded to 2.1.5.

If you want to scrub attachments from everything in 2.1.5, it may be as
simple as adding 'Scrubber' to GLOBAL_PIPELINE.

You could try copying the definition of GLOBAL_PIPELINE from
Defaults.py into mm_cfg.py and then add "'Scrubber'," following
"'MimeDel',". or you could add the following to mm_cfg.py which will
add 'Scrubber' if it isn't already there:

if not GLOBAL_PIPELINE.count('Scrubber'):
    GLOBAL_PIPELINE.insert(GLOBAL_PIPELINE.index('MimeDel') + 1,
