IMAP: wrong attachment-filename?

Sep 12 '12 at 12:30

const char * origfilename; CString newfilename; origfilename = imap.getMailAttachFilename(*email,j); MessageBox(origfilename);

While playing around with imap, to check if i can use your fantastic lib in my new project, i found out that the original attachmentname might get split! Therefore MoveFile etc. would fail!

Test: attach a file with a very long name such as "Wir xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx His zum Dupk von Stklärungen-201101.docx"

The filename shown in the MessageBox will be split with a blanc -> "xxxxxxx xxxxx".

This new 32-bit VC9 build fixes the problem:
