Decoding File Enclosures from AOL
Posted on 1997-03-05
I seem to be having problems decoding attached files e-mailed to me from an AOL account to my non-AOL account (I'm using Quick-Mail with Internet gateway). The files come over as "file.ext." I tried using "YA-base64" to decode the files on my mac. the decoding seems to go well - even creating new documents like word, *.sit,etc., but these files are empty. No data! anyone have a clue? AOL tech support was no help, saying that word docs don't go through well using mime, which sounds preposterous. Anyone have the answer (and don't say have it sent as a text file!)?
