maybe it is not new, that searching attachments is not supported on the Mac and so I have to ask two questions:
Why is the option there in the UI to index attachments? Not to confuse end-users, I hope?!
As Stuart wrote we all thought that version 8.5 will be the one where Mac, Windows and Linux are at the same eye level. If you (IBM) have known about the problem and that it wouldn't be fixed in 8.5, you should have informed the customers.
I really, really hope that you will fix it earlier than in version 9.
