To save all attachments of an email, you can either click File > Attachments > Save All... or right click in the attachments pane and click "Save All..." using the context menu. However, it would be really useful to have a button in the attachments pane that said "Save All..." or similar. 

Reproducible: Always
I understand from other bugs that developers already have plans/wishes to implement this button. I must admit it'll be a handy button, in spite of the space it wastes. However, we should learn from past discussions about header pane toolbar that different people have different needs:

Please implement this right-away as a fully customizable toolbar inside attachment pane, so that those who don't want this button, or need other buttons (detach, etc.), or don't want buttons at all, can customize things to their need, which includes not showing the toolbar.
