Because in your installation, the scrubber generates the extension from
the Content-Type which in this case is application/octet-stream and
not image/jpeg as it should be for a JPEG file.

This is really an issue with the MUA that composed the message, but if
you want Mailman to use the extension from the file name rather than
one appropriate for the Content-Type, you can set


in mm_cfg.py.
