Cameron Laird's personal notes on e-mail attachments

Every day, a new questioner appears with old questions about how to emit and receive attachments under Unix. I've created this page for those thinking as programmers and system administrators.

There are dozens of ways to construct e-mail attachments. What's unfortunate is that essentially all of them rely on at least one component that most operating system vendors don't supply in a convenient form. Do e-mail me if I haven't yet documented a particular form that interests you; I'll likely have it in my not-yet-edited notes.
