Then those messages do NOT contain an attachment. You have to
understand that what *you* might think is an attachment is not
necessarily an attachment. E.g. a multipart/related message, with
images displayed in the message -- those images are NOT attachments.
This is one of the reasons why implementing message forwarding to
display the list of attachments to select/de-select is an absolutely
terrible idea. Attachments, as defined at the MIME level, really have
NO correlation with what a user might reasonably think is an
attachment. Most MIME attachments are not discrete files that can be
easily downloaded, at least with current browsers/Operating Systems.
