==>I received a forwarded message (forwarded by imail),
   which looked like this:

==>I used C-c C-t C-e to display the forwarded message, and saw that
   it contained two pdf attachments at the end, like this:





==>C-o while positioned on either of those two attachments did indeed
   write out a pdf file, but it wrote the *same* pdf file
   (directions_bost.pdf) regardless of which I was positioned on when
   I typed control-o.

   I started to write to you: "I cannot find a way to see the first
   pdf above."  but then I looked in the documetntation and found the
   w command, so I used it on the imail-part of the original untoggled
   message to save the forwarded message as a text file.

   Since that's not a mail file, imail couldn't read it in and save
   the attachments for me ... So I tried to uudeview it in a shell and
   that worked -- I got both pdf files.

Well, I succeeded, but I jumped through some hoops.
Should that have been necessary?
