a - attach-file    - attach file(s) to this message
A - attach-message - attach message(s) to this message

I don't remember all the keybindings. I have to look up especially those 
which are rarely used. I find it really helpful to hit '?' on the 
current view to get the list of keybindings along with their 
description. You can search within that list with '/'. In your case, 
searching for 'attach' you'll find the command 'attach-message'. Maybe 
this helps a bit.
