Description:Content-Type name= should equal the same name as the filename not + 1 because some spam and email filters consider that a mime attack of some sort.

Content-Disposition filename and Content-Type name should be the same.

For anyone who cares .. the issue is:

Some mail clients will "trust" that the file you're sending, and the file you tell it is are the same .. so you can actually send an executable, and say it's a text file, and get the mail client to execute it. Bad Thing(tm). :)

We basically filter/warn for everything that doesn't match, or anything that doesn't specify a contenttype (cause some clients will assume it's an executable if it can't figure out anything else).
