Problem Description:
CFIMAP will download emails from a specific sender, but will not download the attached file. So far I only have it happening with one sender. It doesn't have an issue downloading attachments off other emails.

Steps to Reproduce:
Make an imap call to a gmail inbox with this particular email in it.
var imapgmail = new imap(secure="true",server=variables.server,port=variables.port,username=variables.username,password=variables.password);
Actual Result:
The email comes through, but lists nothing in the attachments field

Expected Result:
The email should have an attachment listed.

Any Workarounds:
Not any in CF. Since it's only happening with one sender, I implemented a catch that will email me when that sender emails, and I can go manually intervene in the gmail inbox.

I've attached several original copies obtained from Gmail's, "Show Original" link. Like I said, it's just these specific emails.
