I have set up email using IMAP.
I can receive incoming messages, by I don't receive attachments.

I have checked "keep attachments"

After looking a little deeper, I can see the attachments are being downloaded database structure > attachments

However they do not show up in the users inbox. The message text is there, but no link for the attachment.

FYI: I am using v8 trunk and the latest tip from addons/mail
