       I got curious as to what this junk was, myself and did a tiny
bit of digging at the messages.  I use mh and mmdf which are good UNIX
no-nonsense text-based applications that handle mail.  The mh user
agent croaks on these MSTSNEF binaries so I decided to look at it to
see what it is.  First of all, it comes as a base64 attachment so it
looks like utter garbage if you try to read it straight.  After
decoding the base64, we have a binary blob of data that looks somewhat
like a word processor file.  I do not believe it is supposed to
execute, just look pretty on your Micro$oft screen.  I used the UNIX
strings utility to see if there was any recoverable text and got:

REPORT.IPM.Note.IPNNRN

       I don't know what non-text junk also existed in this binary,
but it is obviously the result of a totally brain-dead process.

       After attempting to decode it, I feel like the recipient of
one of those jokes in which somebody writes, "how do you keep a total
moron busy?  See other side."  You turn it over and it says, "How do
you keep a total moron busy?  See other side."  I guess that makes me
the moron today.:-)
