Including attachments with sever-wide search across all email boxes in Exchange Server

I have a question regarding the searching of all email boxes in Exchange Server, as discussed in the link below.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/policy-and-compliance/ediscovery/compliance-search?view=exchserver-2019

The question is how to include the email attachments with the emails that match the search criteria? We want to do the search on the text of the body of the email, but we want the attachments to those emails to follow them. Thus, if the body of the email contains the search terms, but the email also has an attachment (even if the attachment or its contents do not contain the search terms or the attachment content was not itself searched), then we need the attachments to go with the emails that had the search terms in the body of the email.

Can someone please point me to how to do that, or whether it cannot be done? Thank you !!!!

Attachments are included by default when you export the results, regardless of whether they match the search query (the message must still match it in this case). But as Dave mentioned, best post such questions over at the Exchange forums.
