I received three replies within the hour.
Sorry I omitted that I had tried to use uudecode with no luck.
The answer was provided by two of the replies. I needed the "atob"
and "btoa" C programs from PD. Brett Chapman was kind enough to
supply me with a copy. I compiled them and was able to decode the
files with in ten minutes.
Thanks again for the help.

Subject: Problem decoding FTPmail files
I am having a great deal of trouble decoding a specific type of file received via FTPmail. I have read and reread my SUN manuals and UUCP books from O'Reilly. Perhaps someone in netland can tell me how to convert the below example to a useable file.
System: SUN SPARCstation IPC
Mem: 8 MB
[-] (binary uncompressed btoa, last)
