We received a file with extension .MLF and we aren't sure what it opens with.  Ran numerous searches on google and didn't find anything consistent.  I've read about it being used with pictures and possibly being used with LINUX.  Any ideas on how to open this file?  It's been scanned for viruses, so it's not malicious.

Try this:

http://discussion.autodesk.com/thread.jspa?threadID=303346

I searched google for the string "MLF file"

It may also be possible to open the file in notepad and look in the first few bytes for a header with a product name in it.

Cheers

Opened in notepad, and I found it was a Groupmax Mail File.  Requires some strange Japanese software to open.  Thanks JamesDS.
