What am I missing here? Where does uuedecode come in?
I get an attachment on an e-mail message, highlight it, right-click
to get a menu of options and select copy to move it to a subdirectory.
In Windows Explorer, I go to that subdirectory, locate the file, double-
click on the newly placed file (all612.zip) and a window appears asking
me if I want to overwrite each file with a new file. I answer yes a few
times, and then am done. 6.12 is installed.
Is it that other e-mail handlers don't do attachments the same way? Don't
attachments just show up as icons on the text body of the note?
