LZ: Re: Attatchments
Yes, I forgot it does come in ZIP format after the UUE part, but isn't it
easier to just ZIP it then attatch it than to ZIP it then UUEncode it then
attatch it? Also, I do not use a seperate UUDecoder (though maybe I
should...) because I use the Connect-85 software (the BEST!) and use it's
UUDecoder, but the problem is you can't open a file into the software (by
association through Windows) by clicking it on the file. Connect-85 will
not recognize this and will simply start the program normally. With this
in mind, it's no wonder why I can't open a UUE file by opening it through

: Uh, not to be like yelling or anything, but most of the files that

: If your UUDecoder won't decode them, then you must be doing something

: is attatched, then save the message as a .UUE file, then just run it

: UUDecoder WILL find it in the message. The only time it IS necessary
: to seperate the files is when there is more than one attatched.
: If you still can't decode the file, just download it from TICalc.Org!
