I found an untitled file on my dad's computer and he wants to know what it is. I opened it in word pad and got some expected gobbelty-gook. Parts of it make me think this is an address file, maybe for outlook or something similar. It came off a mac, so it may be a mac file.

Anyway, I attached the file. Does anyone know what this is?

Thanks
