If you need to add the attachment path to an e-mail template (to make attachments more noticeable and accessible to the help desk staff) all you have to do is add a small piece of code (listed below) into the appropriate e-mail template.

<a href=HDQUERY[[select a.url from dbo.workitem_attachment a where a.workitem_number = WORKITEM(workitem_number)]]>HDQUERY[[select from dbo.workitem_attachment a where a.workitem_number = WORKITEM(workitem_number)]]</a>

These lines add a hyperlink to your template and will open the file attached to the incident.

Note: This works fine with just one attachment.

This wouldn't work for me if I had more than one attachment. Instead I used the Attachment_List macro:

     REGEX{{ATTACHMENT_LIST[[<TR><TD><a href="$$url$$">$$name$$</a></TD></TR>]]}}{{(<TR><TD TAG=0)(.*?)(</TR>)}}{{ }}

REGEX Must all be on 1 line.
