On Non-Digest options, set scrub_nondigest to No. In addition, for
digests, the member needs to receive MIME digests rather than plain.

If the attachment doesn't specify a charset in the Content-Type:
header, it will be scrubbed rather than 'flattened', which is what you
want. Getting your MUA to 'attach' it that way may be a problem
though. I don't think there's a configuration setting to do it in all
