I know I can see which messages have attachments by the 'paper-clip' icon, but I need to find messages from a certain sender that have attachments.
Is there a way to do this?

has:attachment— show mails which have an attachment
filename:xyz— search for attachments based on type or name
If you click on the "Show Search Options" link to the right of the search input fields you are able to specify additional parameters for your search, which include "has attachment" and "from" a specific sender.
If you prefer manually typing your queries,
from:(email@example.com) has:attachment will produce the same results.
Type "has:attachment" in the search field. If you need to find attachments often, you can click the "Add a Quick Link" button in the "Quick Link" section of the side bar when you are viewing the search results.
