Exchange converting NDR's with attachments to MIME Encoded text

I have a problem with our Exchange 2010 server.

If a user sends out eg. a 16 MB attachment, and this for some reason is bouncing back, the Exchange Server is converting the attachment to MIME Encoded text, resulting in a document containing several thousand pages.

Is there any way, that you can tell Exchange to keep the format, so that you'll receive the bounce-back as an email, with the original attachment attached?

Yes, conversion will happen. That is Exchange feature.
Send it in plain text. In outlook change the settings from html to plain text. Test the results.

Strange thing is, that previously we were using MailEnable, which is free/inexpensive, and this handled the NDR's, as it should. Giving only the error, and then attaching the delivery report.
