    We're on 1.74, and when we get mail from some Eudora users, the
    attachment name on .doc files comes in renamed with a bunch of odd
    characters instead of the name. The attachment itself is fine, but with
    the strange name, most people don't know what to do with them.

    Below is the bit that is getting messed up, in this case it came from an
    email that had two attachments, one .pdf that was fine, followed by
    the .doc, the excepts are from the end of the pdf attachment to the
    start of the doc attachment.

    I'm not even sure where to start looking in the code for this one, and
    fear that it might be the sort of area where I could cause more caos
    than I fix!!, but if anyones got ideas, I'm happy to try things.

    cheers,

    noel.
