	Correct.  It is not possible for Mailman to detect which 
attachments should go where in which parts of the digest, so it 
strips all attachments and instead provides URLs to where they can be 
found.  This behaviour within the digest system cannot be modified.

	If you want the same behaviour within the non-digest mailing list 
recipients, that's easy enough to turn on if you're using Mailman
