Indeed. A major annoyance for me with most ActiveSync email clients.  
Decided to walk the 20 feet to my home office to type this :)

You are lucky. Quite a number of users on quite a number of different  
4.3 devices are not able to download attachments. For me, it works if  
I have selected to automatically download them while connected to wifi  
(and I am actually connected via wifi). If I'm on cellular data, or  
that option is not selected, manually trying to download the  
attachment fails. I, along with a bunch of others, have open issues  
with Google on this.

I pushed a fix that reads the incoming data for the schema element.  
I'm still not sure what (if anything) we need to do with that data.  
This should (hopefully) be enough to allow the client to continue the  

Let me know if this works. Also, would be helpful to me if I could see  
what your device is sending in that element once it starts syncing  
properly for you.
