The PB mail object is an implementation of Microsoft's MAPI technology. MAPI limits attached file names to the 8.3 naming convention. As far as I know there is no fix in PowerBuilder because it is an underlying MAPI limitation.

The solution we chose was to implement an SMTP based email solution. We built our own one to work with our corporate Novell GroupWise email system but there are companies that sell ActiveX technology to handle SMTP email e.g. http://www.dart.com/ptml.aspx
