I received an mail with the extension .email ,I found these instructions how to open in OE ,but is there a way I can open it in hotmail with out having to rename the file? Extension: EMAIL Program and/or Extension Function [What's This?] Company [What's This?] Outlook Express Mail Message Microsoft Specific Notes [What's This?] Rename to .EML to access in OE. Note: This file type can become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a file with this extension.
