Earl may have other reasons which he may cite, but my reasoning as to why 
he may have done that is because
you could run into duplicate filename scenarios. Also, I get the feeling 
that some filnames are not "deducable". Some of my attachments have the tag 
as simply "Binary Data" (rather than a filename tag). Perhaps Earl can 
touch on that one.

Yes, this was my understanding, and I wasn't disagreeing that it was a bad 
scheme, for it makes a lot of good sense. I personally thought it would be very 
easy for the user clicking on the Anchor HREF to type the file in. However, my 
management does not. ;)

So once again this leaves me with the need to hack something. Now, I have 
received a few URLs that return anchors that are indeed the same as the file's 

One is of course in Italian, so I couldn't understand the nature of the list, 
but that's not important; what's important is that it has been done.

So, does anyone out there have any solutions?
