Well we need to know what program YOU are using first off.  Most programs that attach files through a GUI simply uuencode it and hide it from you.  When the email comes out they see that uuencoded "rubbish" attached to the email.  Now all they need to do is get a program that uudecodes, and paste that text into there, and out pops a file :)   I'm suprised that Eudora Light doesn't do that though....
