We're going to need more information if anyone can help you. What
version are you using? What is the exact command line(s) you use to
mencode your files?

Also, it's good to manually insert line breaks (hit the enter key when
your lines get to about 80 characters) when posting mail to a mailing
list, if your mail program doesn't do it properly for you.
