GPGMail: Decrypt message.pgp with attachment

I am trying to figure out how to decrypt an email which has a .pdf attached, but to no avail. Only the email body (text) is being decrypted. I have just installed GPG Suite 2017.1, imported my key from our domain server and set Apple mail with my Exchange account. The email comes from a colleague from the same Exchange server. What I did, I have saved message.pgp on the desktop, right clicked, selected Service/ OpenPGP: Decrypt file. This creates a Message.txt file with the body of the email, but no decrypted attachment. It would be great if I could open the message inline, just get a prompt for the passphrase. How can that be accomplished? OSX Sierra 10.12.6
Many thanks.

What did you expect instead

Decrypt both email and attachment

no other plugins

    Hi Andrei,

    in order to better understand your problem it would be helpful if we could have a look at the structure of your message.
    From the version screenshot I can tell, that you don't have GPGMail installed – our plugin which adds OpenPGP support to Apple Mail. Is that on purpose?
