"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I can't think of a single reason a manual would be in RPX format.  Go back to the sending party and ask them.  RPX is not a typical document format (google'ing it gives you something about a laser company).  It's possible they renamed the extension to allow it through mail filters, or it may be a true RPX file.

Only the sender would know for sure.

You are correct from my understanding,  Our User thought it was a Manual as in a book, but now tells me she believes its a file need to Manually update a Clients System as we have our  Tech on Site. I'm told it will be handled on the client end. Thank you

Indeed an obscure file extension.  Have you tried just double clicking on it?
And there are three of them.

Oracle Visual Information Retrieval Raw Pixel Format File
Electronic Storage Corporation Laser Vault Index
Repute Tutorial File

Since you say this is a manual, I suspect that it is the last.  Is this of any help?

Here is info on the other two
(but you may need Visual Studio to open it)
