Description: ------------ Sometimes the d_parameters['filename'] or ['name'] is missing with the attachment. this happens with utf8 encoded filenames(mostly from M$ clients it seems). without filename im unable to save the file. below is the samplecode i use to save the attachments. i have a testsuite with about 900 mails and this problem exists with more than 10% of these. i've tried this with and without utf8_decode, but the variables are always empty. Reproduce code: --------------- if (isset($part->disposition) and ($part->disposition=='attachment')) { printf(utf8_decode($part->ctype_parameters['name'])."\n"); printf(utf8_decode($part->ctype_parameters['filename'])."\n"); $attachmentfile = fopen($datedir."/".utf8_decode($part->ctype_parameters['name']), 'w'); fwrite($attachmentfile, $part->body); fclose($attachmentfile); } Expected result: ---------------- this is the print_r($part): stdClass Object ( [headers] => Array ( [content-type] => application/PDF [content-disposition] => attachment; filename="Auftragsbestätigung_SO_1312338.pdf" [content-transfer-encoding] => base64 ) [ctype_primary] => application [ctype_secondary] => PDF [disposition] => attachment [d_parameters] => Array ( [filename] => Auftragsbestätigung_SO_1312338.pdf ) [body] => %PDF-1.4M%âãÏÓM so the filename parameter is there. Actual result: -------------- but when i use printf($part->ctype_parameters['filename']."\n"); this variable is empty.

I am coming across this problem as well, however in the cases where I find this missing I am finding a ctype_paramters that has the name in it. I am finding this problem on inline attachments in Outlook (e.g. background images).

I am also facing this problem with ctype_parameters being missing. Try to process a mail which has an attachment with the name: "AbcdAbcdAbc'dA.txt" The ctype_parameters['name'] will not be defined.
