This a new problem for this list. It used to save the excel file in the
archives with the correct .xls extension. but now it is getting a .bin
extension. All excel MIME types have been added to the filters. All
other attachments seem to be saving correctly.

This is the message that appears in the archive just above the
attachment link

A non-text attachment was scrubbed...

the link looks like this ( with the name of the list removed because it
is a private list)
