She's sending you a coded message, mate, I'd be worried! [}:)] The wife? That's probably why. [;)]

This is the typical encoding used for an attachment Rob. It's called MIME and is the usual way that e-mail programs encode binary files.

Obviously, your e-mail client cannot decode the attachment, which is the reason you are seeing this goobledigook.

I suggest you ask your wife to send the e-mail again using PLAIN TEXT (under the FORMAT menu when composing a message). Then it should come through without any problems.

The above suggestion pre-supposes that you are using Outlook or Outlook Express. If it's some other e-mail client, you will have to ask someone else such as Ame or Wyseyes :)

HTH,
Grant.
