Subject: [Lon] Off Topic - MIME
Date: Mon, 1 Apr 2002 11:23:06 +0100

To archive postings, I forward emails to my computer which operates aol. Digests appear as MIME messages. After displaying the original message, I copy & paste it to a notepad file.

Problem is with some digests, a message appears to say that aol cannot open the saved MIME message - too large to open.

Does anyone know which other program I can use to open and thus save the file into notepad. I have Works, wordpad, and some other common basic programs.

Stockport, Cheshire (Greater Manchester), UK

Please note - This digital cable Television system accepts text emails but rejects many other formats. It also adds the truncated original message as an attachment when replying. It does not have a cut & paste or address book. George
