This might work for local users, who are the only entries in the system 
directory,  but it's not much good for mail recipients outside the agency.  We 
use either Outlook or Exchange as a client and we use the local address books 
those programs generate. Those programs send MIME attachments by default and 
have been working fine with our ISP accounts. It's only when going through the 
AS400 we have problems, so there must be something there I can change or 
configure since the TCP/IP  reference says that the 400 will send MIME 
attachments (and it wouldn't lie to me, would it).

Look into directory entry (WRKDIRE) for SMTP user you are sending mail
to.
Make sure that "preferred address" is set to 3 - "SMTP address".
This will activate MIME-compliant conversion in AS/400 SMTP code.
