Hiya

Not sure if this is the correct forum, but thought i would give it a go

Keep getting e-mails that have the message This is a multi-part message in MIME format

And the rest of the email is just gobble dee gook.

Any ideas how i can get to read these mails ??

Cheers

Paul

Hi
Does it happen when any user send's you a massage??

Hiya, it all seems pretty random although one particular email when resent did the same thing !!

Think it had an a attachment to it

It looked like this although it had a lot more to the bottom part but it would be massive on this thread

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Paul.. this is probably not going to be of much help, but what you are seeing is the ACTUAL email as received by your computer. If I go to my dbx folders in OE and choose one, drag it into a notepad I will see exactly the sort of thing that you are showing in your post. [This stuff:
"JVBERi0xLjMNJf////8NMSAwIG9iag08PA0vVGl0bGUgKP7/AGMAXwBfAGgAYwBfAHcAbwByAGsA
ZgBpAGwAZQBfAHIAbwBvAHQAXwByAG8AbwB0AF8AMQBfAFQAZQByAF8AMwAxAC4AcgB0AGYpDS9Q
cm9kdWNlciAoQW15dW5pIERvY3...." is actually a picture, or part of, anyway.]
Now the difference between my OE and yours is that mine is interpreting the MIME code, and whilst I am happy with that, you may not be.. :)
Try this...
-Open an Explorer window, search for msoe50.inf -the default location for this file is in the C:\Windows\Inf folder [show hidden files and folders].
-Right click the Msoe50.inf file, and then click Install.
-Insert your Windows XP SP2 CD-ROM when prompted and on it locate the I386 folder, click Open, and then click OK.
The Outlook Express files are installed.
