Problem Description: Attachments not appearing in Apple IOS Mail (iPhone/iPad) app. They appear in all other apps that I have tested.

Steps to Reproduce: Send an email using CFMAIL. Insert an inline image (with a contentid) and a file attachment using cfmailparam. Viewing the email in the IOS Mail app shows no attachments for the email.

Expected Result: The attachment should be there.

Any Workarounds: It seems using the contentID attribute with cfmailparam to attach the inline image causes the problem. The email content-type becomes "multipart/related" instead of "
multipart/mixed" and there is no way to override this value.

Found the following link, but it does not resolve the issue when both an inline and attachment are required at the same time.

#CF-4016861 is an issue with cfpop. The issue here is with cfmail. They are similar but not the same.
