Most good sniffers will dump the capture results in Hex, Dec, and ASCII. If you're sniffing
something that's transmitted in plaintext (e.g. pop3), then you can just look at the ASCII field
to see the information. If the sniffer you're using doesn't support ASCII, you can either convert
the hex results into ASCII, or get a sniffer that does. I'd recommend ethereal, personally.
