    Hi Bjarni,

    Thanks very much for your great work. I think it may be helpful to
    put a note in the documentation (for newbies like me).

    By the way, I also found one funny scenario that the attachment
    won't get scanned by external virus scanner if its name contained some
    funny characters (like Chinese). I think it might be the problem of
    creating the attached file in the underlying filesystem. Can it be
    rectified using an artificial file name instead?
