Well, since I started this: if you don't have access to a file server, or

some other site that might have UULite or a similar decoding program, all this

may be irrelevant. If you can get your (computer's) hands on a copy of such a

program, you just need to save the offending message onto your disk (however

you usually do that) and then when you're using the UULite or whatever, just

find that file. If you don't download mail messages (in my system, such

downloaded messages are automatically saved as TeachText files, but can also

be opened with Word), this is again irrelevant, since UULite won't apply until

you've created a file to decode. It probably doesn't make sense to go into

detail on downloading mail messages, since I think each system has its own

quirks and customs. As to why anyone sending a message would send it in a

uueoncoded format, I'm afraid I haven't figured that one out. I suppose it's

because they can, but somehow that answer isn't fully satisfactory.
