Via Tender: Attachment1.pgp filename (from Outlook)

Reported by Support | February 18th, 2012 @ 11:41 PM | in 2.0b8 (closed)

Assigned to Tender discussion #904. As reported in Tender:

I tried to search but did not find anything in the todo list or
in the forum. I found references to the problems in Enigmail.
The issue is PGP (or the Outlook plugin ?) re-naming email
attachments as Attachment1.pgp and "hiding" the real attachment
file name in a "literal data packet". You can get to this data by
using "gpg --list-packets Attachement1.pgp".
Apparently GPGServices (recent nightly from a couple of weeks
ago) ignores this packet and just generates a (decrypted) file
named "Attachement1" - not ultra convenient, in particular not to
have the file extension/type...
Am I doing something wrong, is it in the roadmap, or is it a new
idea that probably should be added to it ?
Thanks for the excellent support!
