On English Language WinXP with Asian language support.
If I try to attach a file (that has an English language name) but it comes from
inside a folder that has asian characters (japanese) in it's name, when trying
to send a message pops up that says the "Temporary folder C:/ etc . . .  cannot
be opened. Please check your temporary folder settings."
The said folder is not a temporary folder and if it is renamed using western
characters then there is no problem in sending an attachment from this folder.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.attach a document etc from a folder that is named using asain fonts
2.try to send attachment.
3.send fails and incorrect error message pops up.
