GpgOL (from gpg4win) does that.  The version in 1.1.3 is a bit limited
and probably has a couple of bugs.  The beta version in 1.9.x is far
better and displays the attachments in the usual way and concatenates
all inline text parts.  Inline images are not shown, though.  That
version also sends PGP/MIME.

There are some drawbacks: A couple of minor bugs related to the fact
that GpgOL creates extra hidden attachments and a bit more of storage
needed.  There is also a report that PGP/MIME sending does not work with
Exchange 2007.  Anyway, it is beta and I am working on it.
