When I reopened iMail, after a restart, it had a new layout and some old emails and new ones appeared in a code like this:
--Apple-Mail-60D1378F-C3B3-40CE-83FE-70F7B2CBE727
Content-Transfer-Encoding: QUOTED-PRINTABLE
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN;
charset=utf-8

These are my coordinates from GPS Location: -13.02272=C2=B0 -38.82277=C2=B0
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=3D-13.02272,-38.82277



--Apple-Mail-60D1378F-C3B3-40CE-83FE-70F7B2CBE727

Try using the Mail.app "Rebuild" option on the mailbox that's having this problem.

Then quit and restart Mail, just in case.

Man, you're just catching all kinds of grief aren't you Roger?
That Base64 is how Mail, and other apps send pics over the net. You're just not supposed to see it.
Try rebuilding like pm-r said and see if that helps.

Thanks Cradom, the "re-build" worked. By the way, the code did not appear on my iPad!. Best Roger.

I'm glad to hear the mailbox rebuild worked and maybe the Mac or something just burped or gagged on something. ;)
