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