I am sending mail with attachments to people who are Eudora Light and the attachments come through on their end as rubbish.  Any ideas what I can do?  Only one guy has no problem receiving attachments from me and the only thing I can find that makes him different is that he has wincode installed.  I am not encoded these attachments....

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....

I am using MS Outlook via a server that doesn't have exchange installed.  Sometime the attachments received are "chopped off" and a message saying it is too long, and therefore you cannot paste the whole thing into Wincode...

Okay, excuse my ignorance, but where do I find that option?
