Well, apparently you haven't enabled SIS - it requires explicitly 
setting "mail_attachment_dir" (also be aware, this only applies to 
*attachments*, the messages themselves (email body, headers, etc) are 
still stored separately), but I discovered that this doesn't seem to be 
documented in the wiki either, so not surprising you missed it - I only 
found one reference in one email list thread:
