    Hi.
    As I am new to newsgroups, this is a new problem for me.
    Some, not all .jpg´s I download is beeing saved at my computer as .txt

    When I open this textfile the first line says "This is a multi-part message in MIME format." followed by, what I guess, the image in some text format.

    Googling "MIME" doesn´t help me figure out that much about this.

    So, the question is, is there an easy way to make those .jpg´s watchable?

    Try just renaming the filetype to .jpg and see if that makes it work.
    It could be that it's already in the right format but just has the filetype renamed.

    That doesn´t do the trick unfortunately.

    Well is it doing this with EVERY jpg that you download, or just that specific one?
    If it's that specific one then my guess is the file is corrupt, try getting it from somewhere else.
    If it's every file that you download named jpg then what client are you using? It could be a setting you can change or a bug in the program.
    I'm using newsleecher and have no problem with jpg files.

    It could be an incomplete file and thus, your usenet program doesnt convert it to jpeg. If you are getting your usenet access from your ISP, thats probably the reason. ISP's usenet has very low retention and very low completion rates.
    blah blah blah... whatever...

    Ok, I am using Giganews as provider, and using GrabIt as a client. This problem is not at all .jpg´s. Just like 1 out of 5. If I use Giganews Binarey Newsreader as client, I´ll not see those images at all. They won´t be able to download.

    Also, this .txt phenomena tends to be appearing at more "sensitive" .jpg´s. It´s like it´s coded or something.

    It's a way of telling you that you are downloading too much porn

    my guess is whatever they are using to upload these jpegs to usenet is getting the Content-Type wrong.

    i have seen loads of these before but never figured out a way to actual open them.
