  1. I wonder if anyone can help. I have been receiving emails without any problems but when I try to open some of the attachments, all I get is a page of gobble-de-**** nonesense.

    Someone suggested that I save these emails as a 'eml' insted of a 'txt'.

    I have no idea what this means and even less of an idea of how to do it.

    Can anyone help?....

    What e-mail program are you using?
    What are these attachments supposed to be? (You should never open an attachment with unknown contents!)
    Who sent you these letters and what e-mail program did they use?

    it could be foreign characters (eg chinese) that they're typing in and you don't have the language pack for it...

    The emails are just from a friend who's sent emails many many times in the past so they should be fine. I'm trying to open then via Outlook Express
