Some guy send me a .txt file, he said it is encoded, it was very big, here is a sample:
can anybody tell me what is that and how to solve it?

It can be one method to encode text but unlimited to dycrypt it.

What I'd recommend,if someone actually did send this to you,is to ask him/her to send you the info you need to decode it.Even if I was any good at decoding things I still wouldn't help you,because I find it a little hard to believe someone would send you encoded info without the means to decode it.If they just forgot,they should be more than happy to help you.If not then it probably isn't too important anyway.

It's funny how the ciphertext was interpreted as smileys!

Looks like it's uuencoded or base64 encoded to me. Perhaps the headers telling your mail program the encoding got lost somewhere?

I agree with slarty,
check the message header, and or the begginning of the encoded message.
it's not trash since it has 61 caract per line and always starts with M ....
keep up posted on that pls

I have seen a very similar text on SETI@Home data for analyzing.
