Thank you RSparks,
Larry already pointed me to the right solution
when he mentioned MIME for Email.
I had designated my Windows Mail Client to use UUENCODE instead of
B64 ( MIME ) encoding and the seems to be the cause.
UUENCODE is an older method of posting 8 bit binaries
to 7 bit news groups. MIME or B64 encoding is what
is used most today in the USA.
When I changed my email back to MIME (OR B64) the EVENT site
would then accept my posts.
I believe I have worked out Larry's Header fine now
and am converting my data easily to acceptable
I must have made a mole of versions to get it right though.
It took me quite a while even though he tells you
exactly how to do it ???
WINZIP will handle B64 files nicely.
You just cut and paste it from the Properties
then give it a name of Whatever.b64
and Winquake will unscramble it back to 8 bit for you.
There are three main encoders I know of
being (MIME being something.B64) (UUENCODE UUDECODE for something.UUE) (BINHEX for something.HQX).
They all take 8 bit files and convert them to 7 bit for news groups.
The News groups only allow 7 bit data to be posted
so nothing can be executable but only text characters.
Dates back to the 1980s or before.
These people are really really paranoid as can explain why the common
PC is so horribly designed with PROTECTED MODE MEMORY.
In my mind there is nothing like straight line memory where
anything can go anywhere as fast as possible.
I saw an USN NTDS computer in the 1970s that was better
then the kind of stuff I see today with its protected garbage. Sort of like
a DEC PDP1140 industrial computer.
