What if anything have you set in mm_cfg.py for PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_FILE_DIR
and PRIVATE_ARCHIVE_FILE_DIR. That's where Scrubber will try to store
the attachments. It either succeeds or it encounters an error which
would be reported in Mailman's error log and would probably prevent
the digest from being sent so presumably, Scrubber is succeeding.

Once you know where the attachments are, you can presumably put
whatever is necessary in the web server to get to them.
