ond is no standard Lotus Notes file extension.
Fact is I have no idea what file extension it is, I also couldn't find it here:

What you might try: open it like a text file with word pad. It will probably really look weird, but sometimes in the first lines you might find the application.
Also, why not asking the person who send you the file ? If you don't know the person you should anyhow consider if it is a good idea to open it.

The .OND file is the result of a message that was sent from a Lotus Notes 4x user intended for another Notes 4x user.  The sender specifically directed that the message recipient was another Notes user and the .OND is the resulting message in an encapsulated "Notes to Notes over SMTP" format.

For info on the .OND see:

There is a workaround available (see reference above) but the workaround requires the Notes client (and I'm guessing that you as an Outlook user don't have one handy??).  So ... your best bet is to ask the sender to resend the message without the "Notes to Notes over SMTP" setting.

Why did you accept my answer ? After reading rfharris' comment it was obviously wrong and you should have assigned the points to him.
Sorry ...

I meant to give him the credit I goofed   "New Kid on the Block"
Is there any way I can change it and give him the credit he deserved?

To be honest ... I don't know.  I'm also a newbie around here.

No matter .. the points are a funny, non-tangible, yet-somehow-slightly-addictive, fringe benefit.

My earlier comment above was sincere.  Enjoy your weekend ... no worries!

I also have no idea as I only accepted an answer once and thats some time ago.
But as far as I see it if you want to fix it there are two possibilities:
1) open a second question with points for Rhonda (not to good, will cost you additional)
2) leave a message in Community support, if possible EE will take care of this.
3) if all fails I can open a question for Rhonda

   What are the difference in Start up procedure.

You may want to repost as a new question.  Having this item buried inside a thread that closed months ago will highly reduce your chances for an answer. <smile>
