I received an email from a GMail account to my Outlook/Exchange account.  The email is from a trusted party and attached to it was an unknown file type that my Outlook cannot open.  The properties of the file is empty and is a mere 89 bytes.  The file supposedly contains some textual information that I need but cannot "extract".

When opening it with Notepad, the resulting text is "This attachment is a MAPI 1.0 embedded message and is not supported by this mail system."

Any ideas?

There is no attachment extension.   The properties of the file says the file types is a "file".

Is the attachment WINMAIL.DAT file?  Even if not, try the decoder in this page.

Nope the attachment is not a .dat file.  It is a blank file.

The gmail user will resend the file.
