It's a KMail bug due to the implementation of aegypten issue39.

It was reverted in KDE_3_3_BRANCH with the commit log:
revision 1.851.2.6
date: 2004/10/15 23:31:13;  author: kloecker;  state: Exp;  lines: +0 -53
Fix bug 91132 (attachment is not added to message when message with attachment is forwarded inline) by reverting the 'fix for aegypten issue39
'. As Marc wrote in his cvs comment about the AttachmentCollector: 'Rough estimation of an attachment extractor. It probably fails in a thousa
nd cases, but for what I wrote it (re-editing of signed/encrypted mails), it works surprisingly well already.' Well, that's probably the only
case for that it actually works because obviously excluding all multipart/* message parts (isInExclusionList() returns true for all of them) c
an't work because attachments are always inside a multipart/* message part. Also the values of mDiveIntoEncryptions, etc. are not used. In its
 current state AttachmentCollector isn't even ready for HEAD let alone for a stable branch.
