You are correct, but the problem is not the file name but the fact that in
my code I only retrieve the webpage being sent and not the attachment,
therefore I dont have the file.
Also with wireshark I see the attachment going through when i use firefox,
but not when I use libcurl, it is as if there was something else going on
that neither wireshark nor livehttpheaders show that triggers the beginning
of the transfer (which starts when I press save on the firefox save dialog).
