Re: UUEncoded Attachments - Can't see in Outlook 2003



outlook should decode them for you automatically - but something is apparently preventing outlook from doing so. Which OS do you use and do you have all the latest updates installed for both the OS and Outlook? Did it recently start doing this?

I don't think http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951982 applies but it might be worth installing it anyway. However, it will not help attachments already downloaded.

I receive file attachments that are UUEncoded in Outlook 2003.
However, they are not decoded by Outlook; i.e. the body of the message
is the typical:

Begin 600 filename.ext
Mfoofoofoofoofoofoofoo
Mbarbarbarbar
Mtictictictictictictic
Mtactactactactactactac
etc.

My search for this has turned up a plethora of articles on how to send
attachments using UUEncoding. However, with receiving these, not so
much.

Can anyone help?
