    Everytime I download a self extracting archive it appears as corrupted. I can have the administrator of the FTP site download it and it is fine. I have no problems with .SIT files, just the self extracting. I've tried to change the settings to several different options and get varied different repsonses, but in the end, the file is corrupt.

    Any suggestions as to the correct settings for .sea files?

    Unlike a .sit (where all the information is in the data fork), a .sea has information in both the data and resource forks. To preserve both parts you have to encode the file in a Mac-specific format such as BinHex or MacBinary. A .sea file uploaded in either of those formats, with the right file name extension (.hqx for BinHex or .bin for MacBinary) and downloaded with Fetch will not be corrupted.
