updated description to add procedure, and results information.
added upstream bug to this bug. 
Marked as confirmed since i was able to reproduce this bug.

just to add i have this attachment i was trying to send in $HOME/Documents/
not in temporary folder

** Description changed:

  After a few tests, it seems that thunderbird won't send an attachment using the OpenOffice UNO-Service com.sun.star.system.SimpleCommandMail when there is an non-ASCII charakter (german umlaut) in the path of the attachment location.
  Using the built-in OO-function "send email as pdf" everthing works fine (as the attachement is saved in /tmp without any special characters).
  Surprisingly thunderbird has no problem with files in folders with special characters that are attached to manual created emails (not using openoffice).
+ 
+ 
+ open a file with an Umlaut öäüÖÄÜ (like the file in comment
+ https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mozilla-thunderbird/+bug/201655/comments/10
+ 
+ in OOo File -> Send -> document as email (with thunderbird/icedove in
+ Extras -> Options -> Internet -> email )
+ 
+ You will get a new message windows from thunderbird/icedove
+ 
+ Enter a recipient and press send.
+ 
+ 
+ results: get error message 'Sending message failed. Temporary file /tmp/sv1g1.tmp/sv1g3.tmp/filename ä.pdf could not be opened. Check your settings for "Temporary folder".'
+ 
+ expected results: It sends email.
