    .... I just downloaded/installed Thunderbird v.9 last weekend so I am
    a complete novice i.e. how do you combine multi-part messages from
    the binary newsgroups?? Does Thunderbird have the builtin capability
    of decoding yEnc messages or do I have to use another piece of
    software for that??

  2. No, TB does not combine/decode. Ed Mullen has a workaround:

    For binary newsgroups, I'd recommend GrabIt. It just downloads the files
    (no combine and decode needed) and you can queue up as many as you want
    - I often download dozens of files that will take hours but I leave it
    overnight and it just does it with no intervention from me needed.

    Also, it automatically decodes Yenc files (jpegs encoded as text).

    It's freeware from http://www.shemes.com/. Great piece of sofware.

    Kind regards
