It has nothing to do with uuencoding. Usenapp decodes uuencoded content fine.
The problem is, as I wrote before, that it is a text message with an embedded image.
When you open the message you will see the text in the message as well as the embedded image.
I don't see the problem though, because you can just save the image to disk from the message.
Open the message, move the mouse to the image, click the right mouse button, choose 'Save as' and save the image to disk.
Jon_Hanson How are you able to tell if there is a file attached straight from the header? When I examine the headers I don't see anything in there that indicates that a file is attached (other than implying that myself from the structure of the subject line).
The header does not indicate whether it is a text message or a file. But when someone posts a file, the subject contains a piece of text that indicates how many segments the total posting consists of and which segment is the current posting, for example (2/30).
This is the only way to detect a file by header.
If someone posts a text article with an embedded image, the subject does not contain this (x / x) sequence and the posting is not considered a file.
I hope it's a bit clearer now.
