This bug happens because the "metamail" package disappeared in RedHat 8.0. 
After I installed the RedHat 7.3 metamail package on 8.0 (from the SRPM), exmh
started handling attachments as expected again.

I really hope that metamail will reappear in 8.1, for the sake of those of us
who prefer to use MH and exmh.  (It's not in the first beta.)

I am told metamail was removed because of security issues and will not be added
