I don't run Outlook and that seems to be the only way to open it. I've already done a search for alternatives, and they don't seem workable.

Maybe I could email it to someone who uses Outlook.

Has anyone deal with one of these?

According to a quick search, that file type appears to be a rights-controlled encrypted file. Just ask whomever sent you this to send it not encrypted, 'cause if you are having somebody else open this for you, it defeats the entire encryption idea.

That's what I figured, which I tried already. (But I'm still hoping someone else can confirm or deny based on having dealt with one.)

My correspondent is just one of those "ain't in no hurry to be helpful to nobody no-how" sorts, so I'm stuck unless she decides to get up off her Blessed Assurances.

Thanks, Justin.

I feel suspicious about the whole thing. If doing simple things like that is bothersome to her, why'd she even take the time to encrypt it?

If it's something you can get elsewhere and not unique, might I suggest bypassing this dolt.

It's highly likely this is a message saved from one of Microsoft's server side group permissions emails in the enterprise versions of Outlook. The sender probably doesn't realise that there's encryption on it in the first place, as it's all handled by the likes of Office 365's server side processes.

Whoever sent it will need to work out how to save the message to either a text format, or the normal Outlook .msg format (that isn't normally encrypted).

Short answer: government worker. 'Nuff said? big grin

Oh, J.B. if ONLY that were possible!

Oh no, sorry to hear that. That means you'll get your replacement attachment -- to steal a line from Norm MacDonald -- just ten years after the Earth crashes into the sun.

She from the government and she's here to help...






...drive you nuts.

Hey! She got back to me!

And in spite of me asking for pdf, she sent it again in rpmsg!

I emailed back, saying what I need in bold characters.

Let's see what she does with it this time.....

Jeff Foxworthy warned us that people like her should have to wear signs...
