Well, I figgered it out myself.

If you get an email that is obviously a doc, or wmv, or jpgs or
whatever, but the body of the email just shows huge blocks of raw
data, here is what to do.

Select All the nessage body. Copy it all to Notepad, Save As
whatever.mim.

then double click the file. If you have a MIME decoder like WinZip,
it will show the Files as originally sent. (but with some other txt
ones that are the email headers, etc)

while holding the CTRL key, click on the file names whose extensions
you want to save, and then click Extract. and Browse to the folder
you want; and OK.

cheers

Doesn't sound all that good to me. How cumbersome! :o(
