Enable receiving of UuEncoded attachments in Outlook 2007?

    I receive attachments from a UNIX box that are UuEncoded. Receiving them was
    working fine on a different email client (Eudora), but not after I switched
    to Outlook 2007. Is there an option somewhere to enable the decoding of
    attachments encoded by UuEncode?
    Of course now the encoded characters are simply showing up in the body of
    the email.
    I could easily write a script to decode, but I'd rather not have to go
    through the hassle of running it every time.
