Content ID vs. filename?

    I was experimenting with a new feature of Mozilla Thunderbird today - the
    ability to paste inline screenshots (as JPEG attachments).

    When I sent a message with a screen shot embedded, the recipient on the
    other size said that Sanitizer had pulled the attachment. I thought this was
    a bit odd, so I looked at my message source. Here's a bit of the mime header:

    Content-Type: image/jpeg;
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
    Content-ID: <>
    Content-Disposition: inline;

    The Sanitizer log stated that the file had been quarantined with the name of

    Which is telling me that Anomy picked up the Content-ID instead of the name
    or filename fields.

    Is there a setting I can change? Is Thunderbird setting the wrong
    mime-headers for this message, or is Anomy looking in the wrong place?
