A replacement for the 807?

For whatever reason, on my computers, the pictures did not appear as 
attached jpegs, but I got a box with the little red square as though the 
image had not gotten through.  But, I was able to go to the 'source' and 
copy and paste the UUencoded images, and decode them manually with 
Aladdin.  Aladdin spit out two copies each of the two photos.  Maybe I 
put the encoded file into Aladdin twice, because this happened a few 
weeks ago with one of Andre's messages, except that Aladdin only spit 
out one copy of that one.

Maybe it's some subtle flaw in the encoding affecting the e-mail 
client?  Or a flaw in the client itself?  I am using Thunderbird on my 
computers.  The pictures came through fine on my Blackberry.

The second pic, decoded by Aladdin, is over 500K in size. Curious, I am 
trying to see if it is several images concatenated in one file, that 
sometimes happens.
