Get a newsreader. You are using outlook which will never on its own
use yencode. There are ways around it but the easiest and best is
Agent Forte or other good newsreader.

Combine and Decode, try the application Help pages. For OE simply press
F1 to open help and search for 'combine and decode' you don't even need
to type it all in before the help system finds it.

Combine and Decode from the often mentioned and reposted gangle post (a
2003 version).

To assemble a multi-part post using Outlook Express,
click part 1, then, while holding down the Ctrl key,
click each of the remaining parts. When you have
highlighted the last part, Right click and choose
"Combine and Decode." Make sure all parts are in
order in the window that pops up, then click "OK."
When all parts have downloaded and been decoded,
a window will appear with the File Icon in the
bottom left corner (OE4) or in the "Attach"
line (OE5 & 6). Right click on the icon, choose
"save as" and, within the browser window that
appears, choose "Desktop" as the place to initially
save it. If you want to keep it, you can later CUT and
PASTE it from Desktop to any folder you want.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In OE4 it is possible to download
a multi-part binary while simultaneously reading or
posting to other NGs, or reading/sending email -- But:
in the "upgraded" OE5 & 6, downloading a multi-part file
makes the program UNUSABLE for most other functions
while the process goes on; so, if you frequently want to
download multi-part binary files, it's more practical
to use a dedicated news reading and posting program,
such as Agent ("Full" Agent @ $29 -- NOT Free Agent):
or Xnews (free):
or Gravity (free):
for downloading binaries.
Also, for $35, there is Newsbin, which is strictly
for downloading binaries: .
You could still use OE5 or 6 as an email program
and to view/post to text-only NGs, while using one of
the above programs to retrieve binaries.

Note: OE does not internally decode yEnc messages.
You must use a third-party program to acheive this,
the easiest being yProxy:

Again, I suggest that, for binaries, it would be more
practical to just switch to one of the dedicated newsreaders
mentioned above, which all handle yEnc internally.
