When someone sends me an attachment and it is in .eml form I cannot open it... What do I need to do? It says Dell Image Expert -- Cannot open file Fw_(name).eml When other attachments come in I have no trouble in opening them in other forms e.g. Adobe. Thanks for your help

EML ( Electronic Mail) files are used by Outlook Express and other Email clients. so would be opened by your email client.

EML files with "funny" names in multiple folders implies the Nimda worm. OE removes access to attachments using this file extension. However, using forward on the tool bar in OE the attachment shows as an envelope that if clicked opens the attachment (use caution if you do this, it could be a worm). This file type can become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a file with this extension.
