    We've had varying results getting stuffed files to certain clients. PC based clients seem to be OK, while mac OSX clients get a file, after decompressing, that has a "Unix Executable File" icon and is unusable. sometimes the compression method affects the outcome - .zips tend to have problems while .sits are usually ok - though I can't verify every instance. it happens whether the files are downloaded through Fetch or a browser. Any ideas?
    thanks, frank

    I'd recommend using .sit or .sitx for files that will be downloaded by Macs; .zip files don't usually include Mac-specific information that is used to display the correct icon. My guess is that Fetch and the browsers are downloading the files correctly, but the necessary information isn't there.
