Good to know that it's a real message. In that case John should do some
research in the sources and via one of the search engines for existing
tools/methods and develop what he needs. The mailing list archives also
come to mind.

As to the encoding, I found his many messages in my junk repository as
UCE hence the question. John, I suggest that you not encode your
messages to the mailing list/newsgroup.
