| Quite the contrary. As documented publicly of late, Outlook in fact

interesting. I presume this is "recent"; i.e., sites still using,
e.g., Windoze 98, would still consider uuencoded context c**p ??
what happens if the uuencoding is ``begin 555 C:\SETUP.BAT'' (or
whatever the name of the magic startup "script" is ... ) ??
