Thanks.  VM can use the uuencode.exe that comes with the GNU share
file of Unix binaries for Windows, and so is quicker than lisp. I
recall that VM can default to a lisp version for base64 and uuencode,
but obviously this is not as fast.

I was an RMAIL user from '87 till '96, when I moved onto a Windows
laptop, so looked at VM and GNUs, and at the time it appeared VM had a
better life expectancy, although both have maintained, and VM does
everything that I want with MIME etc..
