[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 which probably have a content of more than just simple text, 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>

I had no trouble in reading these mails before. I just clicked on the highlighted URL. 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, for example with notepad, to read it.

Is there any simple workaround for this? That is, how can I retain the Perl installation and still read the mail.
Thanking you,
