Cut, paste, copy *files*?????

Ummm, no (assuming I understand what you're asking). You do the normal file copy stuff like you would on any binary file (open one for input, another for output and copy from in to out until EOF)

' FileSpec$ = Full name/path of original file
' filnam$ = Root file name in local directory
' Ok, we want to copy in large blocks for speed, but we
' can't get too big or we'll run out of buffer
If Len(filnam$) > 0 Then
    rawsize = FileLen(filespec$)
    numblocks = Int(rawsize / 4096)
    fraction = rawsize Mod 4096
    Open filespec$ For Binary As #1
    Open maildir$ + filnam$ For Binary As #2
    If numblocks < 1 Then GoTo copytail
    For cindex = 1 To numblocks
        bite$ = Space$(4096)
        Get #1, , bite$
        Put #2, , bite$
    Next cindex
    If fraction > 0 Then
        bite$ = Space$(fraction)
        Get #1, , bite$
        Put #2, , bite$
    End If
End If
