No.  See RFCs 1894 and 2045.  The need for the "attachments"[1] is if
the orginal message was MIME-encoded (particularly if it contained
text that wasn't in english) the MIME properties of the message must
be preserved.  That can only be done if the error message is placed
in its own correctly specified MIME part.


1:  They're really not "attachments", but rather just another part in
    a multipart MIME message

windows, shut it off, restart it, and reopen the windows before you
could continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.
