I got an e-mail that was forward to me from mikdamac@zdnetmail.com and it had a message with it.
"This message is a multi-part MIME message and will be saved with the default filename Circleof.mim"
I downloaded the file but I can not read it. What do I need to do to read the file? I have tried winzip and wincode. I did not have any luck with either.

When I use winzip to open the file it extracted three text files. This is the only one that I could read.
"This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
You need a MIME compliant mail reader to completely decode it."

I have Internet Explorer 4.0 and Netscape Communicator 4.05 but I do not know very much about them. How do I use one of them to open a MIME file.

It is now March 28, 2000. I guess this is one of the questions that will not get answered.
