Re: [Czechlist] Problems with Seznam
- The person has probably used Czech nat. chars in the name of the doc which
some servers (usually the obsolete ones, such as Seznam) sometimes mess up
this way. IMHO, Seznam sucks as a mail server.

e-mail as codes like "=E6", etc. I even had a macro to convert them after I
pasted the messages into Word. Wow! The nostalgia days of six years ago. A
lifetime in Internet terms.
- Hi Jamie,

well. I was even wondering whether something had gone wrong
with my computer as this did not start happening to me until
I don't mind strange subjects, but unopenable attachments
are a pain. My manual solution: in Outlook Express get a
view of the message source (pressing ALT-Enter, Details
flap, Message Source button), copy the encoded section into
the clipboard (marking the section and pressing CTRL-C),
paste in a word processor (CTRL-V), save with b64 extension,
open the new file using Winzip to decode.
The base64-encoded section is delimited with strings that
are nearly identical, for example
at the beginning, and
at the end. These delimiters must be included in the file
you're creating. There may be multiple attachments and you
can put them all in one file as they are; Winzip will cope.
What, however, may cause problems to Winzip is strange
filenames that are contained in a header right after the
initial delimiting string. Just edit them manualy. From your
I would make
The filename is there twice in two separate lines:
Content-Type and Content-Disposition. I always edit both in
the same manner.
Although I'm giving specific software examples, the
procedure should work analogously with other programs and on
other system platforms.
