I don't like the version with the attachments on the left: the extra 
horizontal space that newer monitors deliver aren't accessible to Mail 
(it makes no sense to use it full screen, and since it does word break 
on window width, you don't want to make it too broad), and it should 
therefore not try to use it.
I like #5 better therefore, combined with the read-only attachment view 
suggested in the earlier mockups.
