That's a side-effect of not parsing messages unless really 
necessary, because it's costly.

There is a "has_attachment" quick search that you can use to find
messages with attachments. Or you can make sure the messages are parsed
in any other way (e.g. by using a body search).

I agree that this is bad UI. Maybe the attachment column should get a
special marker (e.g. a question mark) for messages whose attachment
properties are so far unknown.
