A sad day on Tour in my life...
Authored by: mattdenton on Nov 23, '02 09:55:33AM

I felt I had to share this small sad change: I've been waiting for Apple from 10.0 to fix up the Mail encoding issue (base 64/Apple Double etc) that both Outlook Express and Entourage have options for, and sadly after countless calls to Apple (and some clever friends), turning off our internal Mail server (back to the ISP), lots of testing and other hair-pulling experiences, I moved over to Entourage.

The absolute beauty of Mail is pulled down by this one fatal error: it can't send and receive all types of enclosures! I'm sure there must be more to it that this... surely. I took a file that Mail couldn't decode, copied the text, pasted it in to a little utility I wrote, decoded the base 64 file, and there it was, the simple JPEG I needed! BTW all the files that Mail wasn't able to open, when transferred appeared in Entourage.

Is this Apple with their head in the sand? And I know there won't be an export or AppleScript out of Entourage back to Mail...

Chow, a very sad...
