I posted the below on 4/26 but the replies never addressed the question except to change newsreader and then drifted off subject. Still hoping for suggestions. Someone using IE must have way to view Yenc coded files. Any suggestions on a Yenc decoder add on for IE-8, preferably a free one. Good bad or ugly. I have resisted this protocol for years but now feel I need it to view some files, not make any. I know there are a zillion posts through Google but I trust opinions here. SG P.S. Google hits mostly very dated.
