Hi,
Try compare what is sent in body of request made by example with your one
sent by hackney

curl -s --user 'api:YOUR_API_KEY' \
    https://api.mailgun.net/v3/YOUR_DOMAIN_NAME/messages \
    -F from='Excited User <>' \
    -F to='' \
    -F cc='' \
    -F bcc='' \
    -F subject='Hello' \
    -F text='Testing some Mailgun awesomness!' \
    --form-string html='<html>HTML version of the body</html>' \
    -F attachment=@files/cartman.jpg \
    -F attachment=@files/cartman.png

Your {multipart, PayloadBase ++ [{file, Attachment}]} doesn't make much
sense to me. Try something like {multipart, [{form, PayloadBase},{file,
Attachment}]} (untested).
