Yes, but, erm, not easily / in one step... basically you have to open the
message you want to forward, hit 'v' to go to the attachments display, type
't' to tag the parts of the mail to be forwarded (i.e. the message body
and attachment(s)), then from the attachments display do a tagged-forward
(semi-colon and 'f') (...assuming standard keybindings here...), and go
from there as with any msg you forward. I just tested this on mutt 1.5.4
and it worked (the attachments came through in the forwarded message).
