Some email sent by PC owners that I recieve comes to me as an attachment file and when I open it is not readable. I would like to be able to decode it or read these messages without having to go back to my clients and ask them to resend it in some other format. Is there any programs available that can solve my problem or some other solution.

Hi Echo!

The file is most likely encoded in MIME-Base64.  You need a decoder: <http://mirror.apple.com/mirrors/Info-Mac.Archive/comm/util/cmp/decoder-134.hqx> will work like a charm!  Between that software and StuffIt Expander, you can decompress everything!

I hope this answers your question,
-Curtis

Curtis,

Thank you very much! I tested it and it worked great. I was able to read the documents with Word.

Have a great day, Cary
