Usage of Decoder

Historically, WolfTech provided this tool to assist those who'd received a Remedy queue with a bunch of nonsensical characters (these were attachments which the system had base64 encoded). While this is a pretty rare occurance now, we've received requests to keep this tool available.

Select the base64 code (be sure to look for Header section. This will have information containing the file type, name, etc.). Select from the header down to the end of the section, making sure not to include the “NextPart” line. Copy this whole thing and put it into the WolfTech Base64 Decoder -- it will return the original attachment to you.

You must process each attachment separately.
