The two can look quite alike, depending on the font. If it's the latter it's nothing more than a link to a file which you likely don't have, so you'd need to ask for the actual file to be sent. If it's the former it could have been created by a Tablet PC, PocketPC, Mimio Studio, or CorelDRAW. Since it's a non-standard format you'd need to ask which application it was created with and, preferably, ask that they convert it to a JPEG since it's unlikely you have a program that can open it.
A friend send me two separate e-mails with photos from trips she has taken.
I was trying to see if it could be converted into .jpg, but the attachment is greyed-out. It seems to be a shortcut and nothing happens when I click on it.
I have Vista and hope that I'm in the right forum with this inquiry.
