That happens me on Solaris at work, when I get attachments from MS email people.
I use uudecode to extract the file from the text message. I know you can get a
uudecode.exe program for DOS, I'm just not sure where. Just do a search for
uudecode.exe and you should find it.
uudecode only seems to work if there is a "begin 600" line and and "end" line in
the text document.
