PGP Support for BlackBerry - Forwarding attachments

Hi,

My question is simple:
When receiving a PGP encrypted email on a BlackBerry; can the message be forwarded 'in the clear' without losing the attachments?

From our testing: it will send the forwarded message, but strips out the attachments, even though the message is going in the clear. (I understand that currently BlackBerry's cannot send PGP encrypted attachments) A work around is the user saving the attachment to their device and attaching it to a new message they send in the clear - but this is very cumbersome.

Before getting to the 'how to do achieve this'; I would like to know if someone out there has actually done this and whether it is actually possible.

We getting conflicting information from the sales guys vs Symantec vs RIM vs online research.

Thanks,
