Has anyone determined what utilities are needed to MIME/decode part of
a mail message that was received that had some binary image encoded in one
of the Windows operating systems?
I have Windows 98. I almost never run it. I don't WANT to run it! :-)
I have Red Hat Linux 6.0. I run Linux all the time! :-)
(I only got Windows 98 for games. Also, I have a number of things
throughout my house that connect to a Cyclades 16-port serial card that runs
fine under Linux, and not under Windows.)
I even have VMWare, and it's working wonderfully! I will gladly boot
Windows 98 under VMWare (as I've done occasionally for a few things), so
long as I can run Linux primarily! :-)
I have received a couple of email messages that clearly have a binary
image encoded into it, such as:
Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="elfbowl.exe"
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="elfbowl.exe"
The .exe file above is from a trusted source, and I wouldn't mind
running it in Windows 98. But, many things, such as the .jpg, I can view
within Linux just fine.
I suspect there is a conglomeration of utilities under Linux which
can decode this and place it in the intended file.
Has anyone figured this out?
