uudecode in Mail.app?
Authored by: Noer on Jul 01, '02 02:22:03PM

Hmm... I still use Mail, because I like it (and hate Entourage). However, when a Microsoft Lookout (errr, I mean Outlook) user sends an email attachment, it always shows up as a uuencoded attachment (begin 600 filename followed by a bunch of garbage). Is there any simple way of getting Mail to recognize that this is an attachment, or allowing me to extract it? If I save the message as a file in the hopes of running uudecode on it, it saves it as RTF rather than ASCII text.

Ideas? (don't say 'use such-and-such mailer' - I like Mail best, it's just not perfect yet).

Try dragging the attachment to the desktop, then dropping the resulting file on Stuffit Expander.

I too have found this wierd. But, it happens to me (every time) when I connect via a modem (either in my titanium, or an airport acting as a modem). If I connect as a direct ethernet device, the same message with attachment is perfect. So, the modem does this somehow. Anyone have a clue?
