> is there a way to display the attachment name in the grid showing the subject, name, attachment size etc. ?

commonly the attachment and its size are shown just under the Subject line. however, if you do want to show the info WITHIN the subject line, you need to customise the current email form (which is really not necessary in this case).

Stated differently, does Outlook 2013 search on file name of the attachment? I need to search on this.
Can I display this in the same line as the subject(assuming) only one attachment?

Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a way to directly see all of the attachments in Outlook.

OutlookAttachView scans all messages stored in your Outlook, and displays the list of all attached files that it finds.

Alternatively, if you exported it from Microsoft Outlook to Windows Explorer, then Filecats Professional and Filecats Metadata can extract attachment names, with file size and dates from the MSG files.

This is easy! Just type: attachment:myfile.zip in the search box and Outlook will list all messages containing myfile.zip attachments. You can also search by extension like this: ext:zip. To search by attachment contents you can type: attachment:(text to search for).
