[R] Reading "attachment" mails on the R-help mailing list

I have a minor problem in reading some mail on the R-help list.
On opening these mails, I get a message resembling the following :

An embedded and charset-unspecified text was scrubbed...
Name: not available
URL: <https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/attachments/20090210/77995e7a/attachment.pl>

Lately, I have installed Perl and am beginning to play
around with it. After the installation of Perl, I need to save the
message and then open it with a program like notepad. Is there any simple workaround for this? That is, how can I retain the Perl installation and still open the attachment and access the text content in it from the web browser.

Thanking you,
