Opening MIM file

  diljitsinghji 18:02 25 Mar 2005

I have just been sent some photos and they are on a MIM file. I can't open them. I am running windows xp. I also have pageplus 10 and Serif photoplus 9 installed on my PC. Any suggestions how I can open this file?

MIME file. MIME is an acronym for Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions. In other words, .mim files are a way of sending files across the internet as an attachment to E-Mail messages. MIME is simply a format which E-Mail can understand and send. Usually, a file which arrives as a single .mim file, when opened, contains several individual separate files, usually compressed in a similar manner to a .zip file. WinZip, CoffeeCup Free Zip or similar programs can open these files. With the advent of modern E-Mail clients, it is not a popular method any longer and is often the source of virus deposits now.

I had exactly the same problem a few days ago and was about to give up when I tried IrfavView and the picture just appeared.

I was then able to save it as a jpeg file.
