octet-stream attachment

I'm a webtvplus user and have recived an e-mail with a octet-stream attachment.Because of the limited capabilities of my browser I'm unable read it.Is there a web tool or service that I could forward this e-mail to and have it converted a format my browser can read?(gif-jpg-html)
Thanks, Joe

application/octet-stream - Unclassified binary data (often used for compressed file or executable)

It is unlikley to be an image or proberbly anything that a webtv can use. Email the sender and find out what it is they sent, if it is an image ask them to convert it to a jpg or a gif and send again.

Simply find a program that can read this format and manipulate the format into the
certain format that you want it to be.

Not much of an option for a webtv user now is it ?

I'm using a web tv box,so even if I could find a program that can read this attachment I can't use it.Webtv is only a browser.No hard drive,no memory,no down loads.Thanks for trying,I believe I'm just S.O.L.                                                  jgk

Just exactly what is the name of the file and the 3 letter extension. There are literally thousands of sources on the net that has that information.
