I am not getting attachments on my IMac OS X v10.8.   The no. of MB indicates they are somewhere but I can't find them. They appear on my iPhone5 but not on my desktop. 

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

    I had this issue come up and for the most part it was fixed if you remove your current account and log back in. Unfortunately you will lose most of your folders (if you created any) and you will have to re-sync from scratch. Another possible solution is looking at your preferences and seeing if there is anything preventing attachments from being downloaded.


    Hope this helps!

    Try rebuilding the mailbox: Mailbox > Rebuild



    If it doesn't work use this 2 lines in terminal :

    defaults write com.apple.mail PreferPlainText -bool FALSE

    defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool yes
