Almost there! Email attachment send help needed.

Hi all! First I want to say I think ME is awesome (discovered it yesterday) and so far I have been able to do every thing I've tried with it except for some email issues. Here's what I'm trying to do:

 

After a file (invoice.pdf) is generated by our accounting program I have it set up so Macro Express kicks in and asks for an email address, then when they click ok, it sends an email with a pre-defined subject and body and it attaches the file "invoice.pdf" from the correct folder.

 

Now all of the automation is working like a champ every time (and was very easy to set up for a complete newbie!) but the only problem is when I open the test emails that I have been sending to myself, the attachment shows up as uuencoded text. I've tried a ton of different files besides pdf's and all show up in the recipients inbox uuencoded.

 

Also, I went to try a different mail server but it uses ssl for its smtp server. Is there a way to use ssl for email sending?

 

Thanks in advance! (here's a sample of my email output:
