Happened to me, too.  This is because the MIME attachment does not have the
proper MIME header configuration.  In my case I needed to add the
Content-Type: name value or the Content-Disposition: filename value (can't
remember which) because it was missing.

Content-Type: image/tiff; name="filename"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="filename"

After adding the missing MIME header field, all was well again.
