well, i'm sending them to myself, from a server about 1 state away from me.
besides, if it gets munged up that's no problem for me, i'm not worried.

FINALLY!!! Someone that DIDN'T tell me to go INTO pine and look
for the Attachment: section (I'm not a moron or a newbie, people, I just
have trouble
with wording my questions right).
Anyway, when I send a 500 k file, my mail client (Eudora Pro 3) chops
it into like 4 different files (or used to, i'm not sure now)
but even if it doesn't, how would I go about  uudecoding it through Eudora?

Again, I appreciate the help d.
