This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

I am still trying to figure out the following, but i had never gotten a
response about it.
I am trying to find out how to decode attachements  from newsgroup messages
and
save them to the original filename on the local drive.  Others have
mentioned they were
using various other decoding components to decode the messges, but i am lost
because
i have never used such components and really dont know where to start.

People have said to use the Mime component in ICS, but can someone give me
some
code examples on how to use the component.  If not the component from ics
and the
one from fastnet UUProcessor, can i get a code example on how to use that
one.

When you are decoding attachments, lets say the attachment is mime based and
not
uuencode based, what are you supposed to do then????  I know the program
will throw
an exception, but how is that handled.

Better yet, if someone has a working sample program that shows how to decode
and save
the attachment from a newsgroup that will be really cool.  I have read many
questions in
deja news about newsgroup decoding, but there are never any answers to the
questions,
what going on with that, is it that hard to do.


Appreciate any help on this topic.
