You would run the uudecode command where you want to decode the file.
You said reading on MS-Windows and in that case you would run uudecode
there to decode it.

But I think your strategy is more work than you want to use for it.
The uuencode and uudecode pair definitely work.  But they require
manual interaction.

Why not simply send the file as an attachment?  Let your mailer encode
the contents appropriately.  That will likely be base64.  Then on your
receiving end simply save the attachment.  That would seem to be
easier for you.

You don't say what Unix system you are using so it is impossible to
guess a command for you correctly.  But for example if mutt is
available then the following will work.

  mutt -s "subject line here" -a filename -- address@hidden </dev/null

But it all depends upon what mail commands you have available.
