I got the answer!!!
After many, many, many hours...finally a simple solution.
Go to your applications folder and open the utilities folder.
Open Java Preferences and click on the 2 Restore Defaults buttons.
If for some reason, your java preferences mysteriously disappears from your dock, reinstall Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 2 at http://support.apple.com/downloads/
Then go back and open Java Preferences and restore defaults.
Ta-Da!! Hope this helps you guys~Mac OS X (10.6.3)
same for me... even after enabling extensions on Safari 5, it does not work. It was just after Mac OS update+install of S5.
"missing plugin" still shown in Mail.app :-((
So any info/idea ?macbookpro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
This just happened to me too on upgrade to mail, when upgrading Mac OS X to 10.6.4
Not sure if it was the Safari 5 upgrade or the OS upgrade but to fix.
a) shutdown mac mail
b) Open Safari
c) In Preferences > Advance, check the 'Show Develop menu in the menu bar'
d) In Develop ensure 'Enable Extensions' is checked
e) open mac mail
now mail attachements are correctly showing upMacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
I did all of this to no avail - still not working! I can see everything if I use the quick look function though. I find this very strange! Anybody else having this problem?iMac 24", Mac OS X (10.5.1), Original Core Duo
Thanks a bunch, I clicked on restore Java defaults and the "missing plugins" message which displayed instead of the Mail attachment, disappeared and the icon (doc pdf etc) for the attachment returned.

I saw this problem when I uploaded a cell phone jpeg and noted it said the image was 32 bit.
Solved the problem by going to Applications > Mail and selecting Get Info. Clicked the box "Open in 32-bit mode"
All is working now.MacBook Pro 17", Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Thanks for this solution !!!
Saves me the rest of even more of a whole lot of time figuring this crazy solution out...
Very Strange that Java preferences would influence any settings in Apple Mail.
You'ld think that Apple would have developed its own Mail application without any co-dependency on external software.....
Crazy to think of this, there must be something wrong in your head too to figure out any illogical solution like this, BUT It WORKS !!

I've had the same problem. Since 10.6.1. It happens with PDFs & JPGs in my case. Rebooting mail normally solves it in the short run, or do the reset Java thing if that doesn't work. What upsets me is that I submitted a bug report for this a week after Snow Leopard was released and it's STILL not fixed.iMac aluminium, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Thanks for that diedoggie,
did a general Mac OS update this morning and all of my mail attachments disappeared with the "missing plug-in" message appearing in their place. What is the connection between Mail and Safari that causes this? I would just like to know (for curiosity sake)iMac dual core 27", Mac OS X (10.6.4)
RE: Open Java Preferences and click on the 2 Restore Defaults buttons.
This worked for me, so far. Hard to tell as the problem is only intermittent for me. In case it re-occurs, I'll go the next step and reinstall the Java for Mac update. Btw, what's the Java version number it updates to? Just wondering if I'm running that already.imac 24", Mac OS X (10.6.4)
