    What have you tried so far? A direct answer to your question: Yes it is possible to get attachments of Account from attachment SObject. BUT there is no way to add a custom field to the attachment object so not sure what you are referring to there – Eric Dec 21 '14 at 18:41

You can query for Accounts and Attachments in one Parent-Child SOQL Query.


List<Account> accounts = [Select Id, is_read__c, (Select Id from Attachments) from Account where is_read__c = true];

As commentators mentioned above you cannot add custom fields to the Attachment object.
