Attachment History in Outlook 2013

Hi.

We've had a query from one of our users asking whether or not it is possible to show the attachment history in a chain of emails (forwarding/replying etc). In other words the subsequent emails, while not actually still displaying the physcial attachment, will indicate the name(s) of any attachments that were sent in the previous email(s).

At present all we see of the previous emails in the chain is the subject and message texts and no indication as to whether there was an attachment in the original email.

The user believes this was possible while using Outlook 2003.

We are running Outlook 2013 with Exchange 2007. Our Exchange enginneer does not know of any setting that would allow this. I've also gone through mail options and can't see any option to enable such a thing.

Grateful for any advice.

if user views 'by conversation' and has the 'attachment' column selected a paperclip will show all conversations with any attachment. I'v never seen outlook display the name of an attachment but there may be a column available. I can't check at the moment
