Bob,

It's been going on to a small extent for a while, but has greatly increased with the stuff Gary "Cross Posts" from some other strange place that some folks go to. This also happens on and off on the MQ-Series listserv which I read in digest form. Not sure, but I think the digest process may be more vulnerable. What you do to solve it is copy the base 64 text into your pasteboard and then take it to:

Base 64 decoder (click here)

There you can decode it. I decoded the last post in yesterday's digest for you below. Sometimes they also get ungarbled when someone replies to them and quotes the whole message as was the case with Kay replying to Dick today. Hope this helps. It's not rocket science, just a minor PITA.
