Hummm - interesting situation!

I'm not positive, but I think you're going to be limited to those
gopher servers that are running GopherMail.  I know gopher.kostecke.net
runs GopherMail as I've used it.  There's some documantation on the

 Linkname: Gophermail Guide
 URL: gopher://gopher.kostecke.net/00/docs/gophermail

As for the binary file transfer issue, you'll have to hope that
any binary files requested get uuencoded or similar  when attached to
the email message, otherwise you'll likely get garbage.
