Attachments in PM

[RC3]

Have you the same problem?
1. Write and send a PM with an attachment zip-file.
2. The attachment ist stored in the "../files" folder - please look at this.
3. Delete the PM.

On my server (../files )the atachment exists further

Probably the user you sent the file to hasn't deleted the PM, so the attachment is still available to him/her, therefore it's not orphaned and is still in use.
