You have several options on what to do with attachments. You can have 
them completely stripped (which is what I do on my lists), leave them 
alone or have them "scrubbed".

Scrubbing is where the attachment is removed from the message and 
stored in the list archive while an URL is added to the list post 
pointing to the file.

All of this is controllable by file type, if you desired it, you can 
allow or scrub some types of attachments while disallowing all others.
