I am running Outlook 2007. Whenever a mac user forwards me an email, it has a MIME type, "x-apple-msg-attachment" . What program can I use to view such messages? Outlook won't open them.

Does it have an extension? –  kinokijuf Feb 28 '12 at 14:24

Tell the user to not be an idiot and forward emails the normal way, inlined, and not as attachment. The regular Forward menu item is just above Forward as Attachment in the Message menu. –  Daniel Beck Feb 28 '12 at 20:49
    
Have you tried adding the .eml extension? In my limited testing, this is the file format when selecting to forward as attachment. It's just the raw message source. –  Daniel Beck Feb 28 '12 at 20:57
    
Adding the .eml extension allows outlook to open the file, but it ends up being garbage. –  Brian Feb 29 '12 at 16:39
