If you think it might be an Automap file check the file header in a hex viewer
the first few bytes should be " D0 CF 11 E0 A1 B1 1A E1 00 ... "

Free hex viewer: download from here
The following comes from
But that site may not be safe to view
"Programs that open documents using the EST file extension on a Windows-based operating system include:

Microsoft’s Streets and Trips (multiple versions starting with the year 2000)
Webalizer Language Program (.01)
InfoTech’s Estimator Application
ICE (Interactive Cost Estimating) 2000
National Estimator Program
In general, you must use the version of the program that created the file you are trying to open. However, the latest version of Microsoft’s Streets and Trips is capable of opening files created using earlier versions of its software."
