          Anybody know how to send a Mac Quark file to a Mac using
          Netscape Communicator?

          I have someone who's been trying to send me a Mac Quark
          file.  He's using Communicator, version 5, and simply
          attaching the file to e-mail. I'm on a Mac. Every time he's
          tried this, I haven't been able to open the file.

          So I did a test. I have Communicator version 4.4. I tried
          sending myself a file, but have not been able to send it so
          that I could read it when it came back. The problem seems to
          be in the way Communicator encodes attachments. The only
          choices appear to be MIME or UUEncode.

          When I send the same file to myself through my regular
          software, Microsoft Internet Mail and News, I check "Binhex"
          in the message encoding box, and it comes back just fine. I
          don't see any place in Communicator where I can select
          Binhex (or MacBinary, which I think would work too). Am I
          missing something?

          I also have MacLink Plus, version 10.0. I thought there
          might be a way to take a MIME or UUEncoded attachment and
          convert with that, but I haven't found it. Any ideas?
