    When I had Outlook Express with Windows XP, I had no problem viewing wmv or
    mpg files, now I have Windows Vista and I am not able to view these any more?
    Also what is Yenc? it is in my newsgroup, and I am not able to view them?

    Windows Media Player should handle WMV and MPG files.

    See http://Yenc.org for more on YenC.

    you need a program to open the video files.
    I use Yproxy to decode the YENC coded files.
    works in real time with the file as you look at them.

    Why not? Windows Mail is perfectly capable of doing so.

    The same one as you find most things on the web....
    it's called Google http://www.google.com/
    It is very useful, try it out.
    Type in "Yproxy" and hit enter.

    I am trying to help you! (and making progress.)
    See... http://dts-l.org/goodpost.htm
    That's a bit more helpful.

    WMV and MPG files are often too large to be sent to newsgroup
    as one complete file and are sent as a number of parts.
    A single part of a multipart file will look exactly as you describe.
    It is likely that there are other parts to download and when you
    have them all you then combine and decode them which produces
    the original file.

    Check if there are other parts to the file.
    They are often identified by having the same name
    apart from a (nn,nn) representing,
    (part number of number of parts)

    Make sure you have downloaded all the parts,
    highlight (select) them, then run a combine and decode.

    sounds like the file is a multi-part and you do not have all the parts.

    but sometimes there are over 10 different pages that need to be downloaded.
    i never had this problem when i was able to use Outlook Express, all i did
    then was click on the file and seconds later the attachment was there

    Even in Outlook Express, you had to download all parts of a multi-part message,
    select them and then Combine and Decode.
