That's a uuencoded attachment.  Uuencode is an older method of handling 
attachments, more common in newsgroups rather than mailing lists.  MIME 
attachments are the standard, and most common attachment method in use today.  
Even newsgroups are mostly MIME now.

uuencode and uudecode from the sharutils package can be used to create and 
read uuencoded attachments.
