    It still won't decode files with mutiple MIME doents. That bug was
    there in 7.0 and hasn't been fixed since. The current doc release
    didn't fix it either.

    Maybe when they hire better Q&A people (or fire the one that comes from
    Microsoft), I'll buy again. For now, 6.01 works just fine (or 6.5 for
    MacOS X).

    8.0.1 added a few formats but they are formats you rarely see any more
    (yEnc joined mime in this regard - used rarely)

    Daily. I download binaries from newsgroups and they're a mix of BASE64
    and UUENCODE. 6.x reads these text files without problems and decodes
    the binaries. 7 and 8 do not. I asked for my money back when I
    discovered this. But I want the bug fixed.

    I stopeed having this problem with 7.x - perhaps it is due to your
    newsreader not being all that bright - NT Newswatcher 3.3b1 and Halime both
    allow extraction of encoded binaries. They both work fine even with poorly
    number files (ie file 2/34 which is NOT a segmentaged file just a file of a
    series)
