Thank you for explaining that well and I fully agree on that.
I just sent an email with an attachment to myself, it arrives, I get a
notification, then I click on my Inbox and the only icons on the left
I can see is 'Personal' and Unread'.
Only when I open the email I can see that it contains an attachment,
in my case a simple .odt file.
