This is really weird but when I download a certain document from my work email, it changes the name. For example I have a file called GB 02-08-2013.docx that I have to download weekly and change the number (which indicates the date), and when I click the file to download the name is changed to GB%2002-08-08-2013. I saw another post about it adding  the %20 for spaces but did not see a resolution.


This only is an issue with Safari. When I use Chrome it downloads correctly.

My work email is accessed via OWA.

    If you take the space out, the % sign will not appear.

    GB02- . . . is the best you can do, I believe.  Or maybe GB.02 . . .

    GB-02- . . .

    Just can't do the space.
