Unwanted attachments with random number/letter combinations for names

Hi there,
Whenever I download an attachment from an email there are one or more additional unwanted attachments with random names like "D76105D3-F666-4ECF-BD49-9821077AC674" that appear as well. If there are multiple emails in a thread, there are even more of these. No idea why this is happening, but it's becoming a problem - colleagues are trying to open these thinking I intentionally sent them an attachment.

I'm using Airmail with a Gmail account.

Any ideas why this is happening and what can be done to fix it?
