Mime Decoding

Alas, my system suffers from the same limitation. I have installed a utility to decode MIME attachments (each into separate files) and it's very inconvenient to use. My employer won't change to a system that supports MIME and the vendor of the e-mail product, a big name in e-mail, is not planning to support MIME in the next 12 months. :(
