    Is there a way to change the way Mail displays attachments? I hate how when attaching certain file types, such as PDF, instead of just showing multiple attachments in a nice little list, it shows you the whole freaking preview of the attachment and you lose track of what file (or type) it even is in the process.

    I would try postbox. It is like the mail but it archives all files and things inside recieved e-mail and separates them so if you click on attachments it gives you a new tab to view attachments.

    NOTE: The postbox software is still in beta so it is free but it may become shareware once the beta tag is removed.

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    I've been searching for a way to get this behavior in Mail for about 3 years now and haven't had any luck. It's seriously one of the most annoying things about OS X to me. It further annoys me that you can't even highlight all the massive previews of the images or pdfs, right click, and select "View as icon"- it only changes the first one to an icon. Stupid.
