Yep. I'd bet your "Encrypted attachments" are nothing more than attachments.
Check the MIME headers in the original message. Individual files are attached
unencrypted. If the sender wants them encrypted, PGP/MIME must be used to
encrypt the _entire_ email as one unit.

Rather than PGP 6.0 on the Mac, why didn't you install a recent GnuPG version?
Checkout the MacGPG project.
