Oooh.  That's brilliant!  I would have never got to the point of thinking
of attachments and re-indexing rather than separately of encrypted email,
emails with (PDF/TXT/DOCX) attachments.

Then the issues collapses down to two different components
1 - re-indexing messages
2 - plugins/external tools for different attachment types  - hello

Simple!  So you'll have a patch and next release by this weekend?   :-P
