Subject: HTTP file upload?

Hello all,

	I have a small problem.  I'd like to provide a method for bicycling 
groups to upload their monthly newsletter onto my ftp site for 
retrieval by their members.  To this end, I'm using FORM ENCTYPE as 
follows:

<FORM ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" URL="mailto: bp@beachway.com" 
METHOD=POST>
<INPUT NAME="filename.xxx" TYPE="file">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Upload file">
</FORM>

	With that, I am successful in sending Adobe PDF and simple text 
files, but GIF and pkZIP files arrive corrupted when I retrieve my 
mail.  Is there a certain way of encrypting files based on their 
content to allow successful transmission?  The only browser I've 
tried this on is my own, Netscape 2.0b3, running under Windoze 95.
	Suggestions?  Thanks!

Regards,
 Bill
