Problem Description: If an email is downloaded over imap that has a tab in the filename, it can not be downloaded, in fact cfimap doesn't even report seeing it, whereas Thunderbird's imap implementation will see it and replace it with a %09 (html encoding), gmail will replace it with an underscore (_)

Steps to Reproduce: Send an email to an inbox you can download via imap. This email should have an attachment with a tab in the filename. I achieved this using Thunderbird and renaming the file and pasting a tab character in. Some of our clients/partners automated systems have tabs in filenames.

Actual Result: The record of that email has an empty result for attachments, and saves nothing to the folder specified.

Expected Result: The record should list a file in the attachments, and have saved that file to the drive, most likely replacing the tab with another character, like a space or underscore.

Any Workarounds: Attempt to get whoever is sending the files to remove the tab, have had varying amounts of success with this.
