Research by Andreas Kurtz shows that iOS, since at least version 7.0.4 and including the current version 7.1.1, does not encrypt attachments at rest.

Kurtz tested for the bug by creating an IMAP email account and putting some messages with attachments in its folders. He then shut the device down and accessed the file system using well-known tools and was able to view the files in clear text.
