I have tried google without success, if you know the answer could you be more specific please.

I have tried following your link, and I downloaded and tried "winmail opener" with no luck. I could email the sender and ask him to send in jpeg format, but he was the guest speaker at a dinner last night and I don't really want to bother him.
Any other ideas?

Thought Irfanview may hale as they support a whole range of goodies in their tucker bag -
ie allows IrfanView to read some rare image formats. (Formats: PSP, G3, RAS, BioRAD, Mosaic, XBM, XPM, GEM-IMG, SGI, RLE, WBMP, TTF, FITS, PIC, HDR, WAD, WAL, DNG, EEF, NEF, ORF, RAF, MRW, DCR, SRF, PEF, X3F, CAM, SFW) Bt yours seems to be missing ;(
well back to drawing board ;)

changing the extension to .jpg or .gif to see if it would open ??? ;)

Yes I can't. In properties it is described as a
Video CD Movie and it tries to open in WMP. I think I will just have to email him as they are photos of a presentation.
