    I went to Finder > "All Files" and found an image.
    When I click "Get information" on the image, I get ~/Library/Mail/V3/[...]/Attachments/[...].
    How can I find the particular email message with this image?
    My Mail.app library has +1000 emails so I can't do it manually.

    Thanks

    if you know the name or partial name of the attachment, you can, within mail, use the search term: "attachment name contains: string-to-search-for"
