RE: Contamination from Nuc Med patients

I am interested in how you determined that my server does not understand
"this format" (MIME). As you can see from the copy of your whole letter
(including the MIME-encoded message) displayed below, it understands it
very well. 

Was this assumption made because I have Netcom as a server? I have very
recently installed the Eudora Com mail server, which understands MIME veery
