I have normal attachment icons for the messages in my sent folder that
have attachments, but then the only place I have an attachment tab is
in a compose window, not in a message in the sent folder.

Claws only actually encodes and adds the attachment when you either send
or save to drafts, so you can't see the attachment until this point has
been passed.

If I have misunderstood what you're saying please ask again.
