I, too, answered Margaret directly, but I'll repeat it here.

UUDECODE/UUENCODE comes with Unix, so if your internet
connection is on a Unix box at work, just type the
command and you're ready to go. Ask your local Unix
guru for details.

There are also UU programs for DOS, Windows, and Mac
platforms, but I don't know where to get them. We have
the Windows version in-house.

You may find that your local sysadm has a copy for your
platform (or knows where to get one).
