Netscape and attachment File names (7.x)
<img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers
My friend is using Netscape to gather his Mindspring.com e-mails.
Some times when he gets a file attached to e-mail messages, and then he saves the attached files, the name of the file gets a huge string appended to it thus making the file extension buried in a string of characters, and he has to clean it up otherwise Windows will not recognize the file as say a JPEG image or an Excel workbook.
1) Is this caused by the SMTP standard that sends all traffic as text?
2) Is there a setting that we need to switch to get this taken care of once and for all?
Thanks for any hints.

Re: Netscape and attachment File names (7.x)
Has your friend tried right-clicking on the attachments and choosing Save As? That should give him/her a choice of which folder to save to and which name to choose. It sounds like they are simply accepting the temp files default. Not everyone wants to save every attachment.Grüße
