I cahnged sylpheed to use the comcast mail service directly and now I can get attachments with multiple pictures just fine. I've abandoned fetchmail as a way to get mail from comcast.

Do you have any more data on what the problem was?  I've used fetchmail
for several years, without any such problem.  Might it have been a
too-tight timeout for a large file?  That's configurable, I believe.
