[JIRA] How to prevent e-mail notifications on adding attachments?

In the issue view screen, click 'More Actions --> Attach Files', and upload an attachment. A notification e-mail is sent. Apperantly 'Issue Updated' event is triggered.

One of our clients is asking if there's a way to disable this e-mail notification without affecting the usual e-mail which is sent when an issue is updated. So, when user edits an issue and changes one or several fields, an e-mail should be sent. But, when adding an attachment, an e-mail should not be sent.

Is there any possible workaround to accomplish this?
