Alas, everything was included except the bad file!

Well, never mind. I think this will do the trick.

Go to the file parse.c and look around line 2004, and you'll see the following:

                             * Saving of the attachments is being done 
                             * inline as they are encountered. The 
                             * directories must exist first...  

                            if (binname) {
                                binfile = open(binname, O_WRONLY | O_CREAT | O_BINARY,

Between the comment block and the "if" statement, put the following:

#ifdef O_BINARY

Then change the right-hand side of the assignment statement to binfile so that it reads:

                            if (binname) {
                                binfile = open(binname, HM_OPENMASK,

go back up to the main directory and type "make", and that should work for you.

If that doesn't work, let me know, and please send me a copy of the bad file.
