In kmail, there is a column "attachment" that shows pixAttachment in case the respective mail has an attachment. But for imap accounts this is not true, the column always shows blank here.
Is this a duplicate of bug 123704?

Created attachment 22605 [details]
incomplete patch to show a development direction
When this bug occurred, I had an imap account A.
Now that I have an imap account A and an imap account B, the error only occurs in imap account B, imap account A is fine.
I deleted imap account B, and now, the error again occurs in account A.
Researching more, I find that the attachment-icon is only shown for mails that have another icon that is for pitty not explained with a whatsthis-help or so.
Ok, looking in kmail/pics: Only mails that have the kmmsgsent.png icon get a pixAttachment icon. Mails that have the kmmsgread.png icon do not get a pixAttachment icon even if they contain an attachment.
Starting from the beginning: With my kmail imap account I can receive messages with an attachment. These are marked with the icon pixAttachment. But when I send a message with attachment myself, only the sent message (to be recognized by the kmmsgsent.png icon) carries the icon pixAttachment, the received message (to be recognized by the kmmsgread.png icon) does not carry the icon pixAttachment.
In other words, if other people send me attachments, kmail recognizes this, but if I receive a mail from me with attachment, kmail does not recognize.

Today I sent myself a message with 125.4 KB and the icon was shown in the inbox and in "sent-mail". So, size matters ;)
I think I have the same problem, but it is not related to imap.
I can observe thee same behavior when the message is copied to a local folder, the icon is still not displayed.
here is a test message not displaying the attachment icon : http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/4/13/302 then click on forward.
This message has an attachement (a patch) and the icon is not displayed, neither in my imap inbox nor after beeing copied to a local folder.
kmail 1.9.9/KDE 3.58 on Linux debian/testing
problem still in 1.9.51 kde 4.1 beta 1
with "load attachment on demand" is TRUE
after clicking the message the icon is shown

I could verify this is fixed with KDE 4.1 revision 844716.
