In this case, the "person" was me! ;-) I had a little area on my Eudora
mail program which had a check beside it, and wasn't supposed to! It made
the attachments be text in the message. Paul pointed that out to me, then
I tested it on him and another Jim on the list, and they both got the
gedcom the right way.
Now, I still don't know whether the guy with 7.0 was able to read the one I
sent to him, because he has not replied yet.
Anyway, I have definitely learned something new through the experience!
Thanks for the help. We can always use everything we can get, right? :)
