Thank you, Angus, for all your help on the issues surrounding attachments!
The UUencoded format is very good information. I had heard the name before
but I know nothing about it.

When you mentioned that Netscape didn't like it, I just opened the Archives
with Internet Explorer on my Mac. I have both Netscape and Internet
Explorer because I have to test my web site to make sure it looks OK on
both browsers...

Anyway, when I opened Lourdes' old messages with the UUencoded formatted
.GIF and .JPEG in the Archive, both of them still showed up as garbage on
Internet Explorer...but of course I am on a Mac and I didn't test it on a
Windows machine yet.

Val ;-)
