There is no standardized top-level header field for attachment 
information.  A message with attachments has a top-level Content-Type 
header field of multipart; each attachment is a body part with a 
Content-Type header field and typically an Attachment-Disposition header 
field indicating if the attachment is intended to be displayed in-line 
versus handled as a classic attachment.  So I don't think attachment 
information logically belongs in the header view.

However, MailMate does have options to display information about each 
attachment either at the top or bottom of a message.  There is also the 
ability to display a paperclip icon for a message with an attachment in 
the table of contents view.  If you right-click a message in the table 
of contents view, MailMate has some contextual menu items for 
attachments, including quick view and save.
