Mail, by default, provides a preview of attachments in can read, such as graphics and PDF files. However, you can run a command in Terminal to turn this off. Run the following:

defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool yes
Quit Mail and relaunch it. When you view a message, all attachments will be shown as icons only. To restore the original functionality, run this command:
defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool no
