Let me try to explain it in greater detail.

There are two different operations you have asked about.

1) You have asked to send someone all of the attachments from a particular
   message.  That functionality is not native to nmh, but it is possible
   to script it.
2) You have asked to forward a MIME message, including the attachments.
   You can do that with forw -mime (and "mime" at the What Now prompt).
   That will create a message which contains the messages you wish to
   forward in such a way that will preserve the MIME structure for the
   recipient.  Using forw _without_ -mime will not.
