CFMail attachments being stored with Creation-Date, Modification-Date....

I have an odd problem.  We have our own web based email client written in ColdFusion.  We download our messages and attachments from the POP server using CFMAIL

About 1 in 100 email attachments are stored as:

File Name.doc;%20size=134144;%20creation-date=Tue_%2024%20Nov%202009%20110342%20GMT;%20modification-date=Tue_%2024%20Nov%202009%20110345%20GMT

... rather than ...

File Name.doc

In other words, the:  ;%20size=134144;%20creation-date=Tue_%2024%20Nov%202009%20110342%20GMT;%20modification-date=Tue_%2024%20Nov%202009%20110345%20GMT
gets appended to the file name as it is stored on disk.

I can't find any pattern to it - although it does happen consistently from a couple of users who have Outlook (but not from 99% of people who have outlook)

Any thoughts?
