I sent an attachment a .doc word file from Thunderbird. The name of the attachment was AndyKwork.doc
When I received it in Outlook 2003 the name of the attachment was something like AT00013.doc.

Why does T-bird do that?

Is that normal?

Is there away to make T-bird not do that? Keep the original file name?

It's a bug:

Set the pref mail.strictly_mime.parm_folding to 0 as a work around.
Extensions for Thunderbird: <a href="">Contacts Sidebar</a>, <a href="">Timestamp</a> and <a href="">Allow Empty Subject</a>
