receive Netcom e-mail through Eudora

As a follow-up to my recent question, how do I configure my Eudora Light to receive my Netcom e-mail? The reason I want to is that I occassionally receieve e-mail in MIME format, and Netcom cannot convert them.  Instead, I get an unconverted block of text (symbols) in the regular body of my e-mail message.

I'm using Netcom NetCruiser 2.1.1 and I have Eudora Light 1.5.2.

Here are some Eudora settings that might be pertinent(?):

Getting Started
POP account - my netcom e-mail address
Real name - my real name
Connection method - offline (no connection) is *not* checked

Hosts
SMTP: smtp.ix.netcom.com
ph: (blank)
Finger: (blank)

Checking Mail
Authentication Style - Passwords radio button is chosen

I was able to set up Eudora to retrieve messages from the Netcom server (I had a small mistake in the POP address).

Now Eudora says the file has been decoded and lists the pathname. When I go to read the file, it's still in hieroglyphics.  Is it possible that Eudora can't convert the file because it came through Netcom? Isn't Eudora supposed to be able to convert MIME files?

When you say it is in hieroglyphics do you mean all sort of wierd
characters, not just letters, numbers, and a few special characters?  If so it sounds like it was converted, and is now
in binary format.  What extension does it have?  If you want
you can send me the file by email to djs@ionet.net and I will
see what it is

Thanks, singleton! It turns out I just needed to unzip it!  I just needed to know what state it was in - I didn't know it was already in binary format.
