Attachment with trailing extra quote in filename

I have seen this issue in Airmail also in the non-beta versions.
Typically when I get forwarded email from especially one sender I see the attachements in Airmail 3.5.5 on macOS 10.13.4 as filename.pdf" (note the unmatched, trailing quote).
If I save it I will need to remove it for Preview to want to open the file.
It does not show if I read the email on Mail.app, Webmail or Airmail on ios.

I have only seen it on PDFs, but then again I mostly deal with PDFs so it could be a coincident.
My account is using IMAP, the server is Cyrus and usually the forwarded mail comes via gmail.com

Any ideas or suggestions?

    I am getting the same thing. It is difficult as I have to assign acrobat as the reader every time to get these files open and it is breaking workflow. Please help.

    Hello,
    Is there any update on this? This is still a major pain point in using the app day to day.
