Try this work around.
Open Mail, not in Full screen mode. You need to be in classic lay-out.
< Command - , > to open preferences if you need to switch
Then from here <control-click> anywhere in the column area to make additions to the column
revert back to the new 3 column view. If you loose one of the columns grab one of the vertical sides and drag it to resize.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7), 2.4GHz IntelCore i5 320 HD 8GB RAM

Thanks! This works, but I'd sure like to be able to access a couple of those in the new version, since I really like the way that automatically groups by conversation. Maybe someday....

What I meant to say was: it works as long as you stay in the classic view - as soon as you revert back, you lose the other attributes (like attachments) that you selected and which DO show in the classic view.

In the new 3-column view you will see the attachment icon in the middle column, next to the senders name.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7), 2.4GHz IntelCore i5 320 HD 8GB RAM

Sorry - you're right - it DOES show. I was looking at some messages without attachments so didn't realize it shows without columns - this is really pretty cool! Mea culpa - thanks for the answer! So far, I'm loving both my Macbook Air and Lion (after 3 hours of ownership).

I had a strangely bizarre fix to this after fiddling around for a minute......
-In mail I hit: Command , (to get into options)
-Under the "Viewing" tab I clicked on "Use Classic Layout" and closed the options box.
My mail then reverted back to the old layout where sent messages were demonstrated accurately. After deciding that I didn't want to continue in the classic layout, I repeated the process above and unchecked the "Use Classic Layout" option and BANG, my sent messages remained in the correct format within the new mail layout!
I hope this works for others. These Mountain Lion Bugs are driving me mad.
