            Bug ID: 4003
           Summary: Attachment names/extensions do not work with other
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.16.0
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major

Hey there,

it seems that the file names of attachments that I send with Claws have some
strange kind of format that are unreadable by other email software.
Example: a ".doc"-file is renamed to something like =BMjAxOF9GcsO8aGphaHJfUE0r=
when opening the e-mail in another program (or even the web interface).
This happens both to the recipients of my mail as well as to myself when trying
to open the attachments using another client.

Any hints on how to fix this (should the problem be on my end) would be greatly
