Yesterday I Was Playing With

| Comments

Yesterday, I was playing with some Exchange e-mail files. I don’t happen to have Outlook on my laptop at work, but I still wanted to open the files and check out the attachments. I tried to just cut the attachment section out and put that into a new e-mail, but that didn’ work. I also tried renaming the file .eml and opening it up in Outlook Express, but far be it for Microsoft to include compatibility between their own software… Finally, I had the near brillian idea of renaming it to a .mim file, since I noticed some mime headers in the e-mail. Open that .mim up in Winzip and voila! There was the text portion of the e-mail in all it’s glory as well as the attachments.

Nifty, eh?
