Email recipient problems with uuencode attachments

Most of my email attachments are fine, but some recipients get the email with the uuencode attachment included as "text" at the end of the body of the message.

Has anybody seen this? It seems to happen most with yahoo, msn and other freebie email addresses.

Without knowing how you send your attachments, we can only guess. Try send them as MIME instead anyway.
