    Sam,

    yEnc is in the public domain. We generally do not use open standards.
    We prefer our own "standards" which we can keep closed and use them to choke
    the life out of our users.

    Thanks for contacting us.

    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yenc:

    <quote>
    There is no RFC or other standards document describing yEnc. The yEnc
    homepage contains a draft informal specification and a grammar (which
    contradicts RFC 2822 and RFC 2045), although neither has been submitted to
    the Internet Engineering Task Force.

    No standard := No incorporation

    Probably not. Microsoft is devoting most of their email effort to a
    newer program, Windows Live Mail:

    When I wanted yEnc decoding in Windows Mail, I downloaded and
    installed OeyEnc. You have to start the OeyEnc Loader instead of
    Windows Mail, and let it start Windows Mail, to get it working,
    though.

  5. Thanks. I used to use a similar program years ago with Outlook Express but
    can't for the life of me remember what it is called.

    Well, that makes sense, Bob. Thanks for the info. Now I know. :)

    try Yenc, you use the standard WM icons to click, it works as proxy server.
