POP3-format difference for attachments (Exchange 2003 vs 2010)

We have a program that automatically parses pop3-output from a certain mailbox. We are migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010. The problem that rises now is that the pop3-reply from a mailbox on an Exchange 2010 differs from a mailbox that's on Exchange 2003, especially the way attachments are presented, and that causes problems.

From an Exchange 2003 mailbox:
...
Content-Type: image/png;
        name="image001.png"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-ID: <image001.png@01C97A2C.15ABA550>
Content-Description: image001.png
Content-Location: image001.png

From an Exchange 2010 Mailbox:
...
Content-Type: image/png; name="Onenote_Popup_DirectZoeken.png"
Content-Description: Onenote_Popup_DirectZoeken.png
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Onenote_Popup_DirectZoeken.png";
        size=13262; creation-date="Fri, 05 Feb 2010 09:48:50 GMT";
        modification-date="Thu, 04 Feb 2010 13:34:20 GMT"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

...

The problem we see is this program tries to save the attachment as Onenote_Popup_DirectZoeken.png;size=13262; creation-date=Fri, 05 Feb 2010 09:48:50 GMT;modification-date=Thu, 04 Feb 2010 13:34:20 GMT  in stead of just Onenote_Popup_DirectZoeken.png. So that fails miserably.

So the question:
Is there a way to get an "old style" POP3-attachment-answer from the Exchange 2010 mailbox?

Thanks in advance

Simple answer I suspect is probably no.

The POP3 services were provided by IIS in Exchange 2003 as were the SMTP service.  In Exchange 2010 they are integrated in to Exchange so they are actually different services.

The POP3 service in Exchange 2010 is provided for backward compatability only

So isn't there a standard for formatting these POP3-messages? How can there be mail-parsers then...
We'll have to work closer with the creators of the software to fix this problem :(
