Cant open .bin files sent from Mac in ou

By Steve Penn ·
Hi,

I have a problem whereby one of my users receives attachments form a design company who uses Macs.

Whenever she opens the attachment (outlook 97, nt4) it comes up as filename.jpg.bin and she cannot open it. However if she forwards it to me (I'm running outlook 2000) I can open it fine.

Is there any way Outlook 97 can open these files?


Steve

A .bin extension is a Macbinary file. Outlook 97 has problems opening these attachments. See article 165115 at
support.microsoft.com.

However, you can download a utility that may help you with your problem at

It can open .bin files.

Also, try installing Outlook 97 SR2b. It may resolve the problem.

Can she open document outside of the OL97? If she could NOT that means her associate open this file is broken. You need to re-associate this file with the correct application.

If yes, why don't you upgrade that OL97 to OL2000? OL97 has many bugs and also you need to apply many patches. OL2000 is a lot better.
