What I'm reading on several sites is that Outlook will open the attachments.

Also read that PGP will handle it but only found that on one site.

Thankyou for your reply BenHolliday.

Unfortunately I don't have outlook. I will try looking for other software.

I came across Cryptigo, any thoughts about that ?

Re: [PLUG] What's smime.p7s? (Was: Ginger)

S/MIME is an SSL-based MIME extension, developed by (I think) RSA Data
Security. It attempts to do the same sort of stuff as PGP - allowing for
encrypting/decrypting and signing of emails. pkcs #7 is the data format.

Outlook comes with support for it built-in, and PHP has some new S/MIME
functions built-in if compiled with openssl support.
Seems its not an attachment that you need to open as it doesnt contain any useful information that you need.

There is a p7mViewer software from them that reads encrypted or signed mails. Other than what the page says I have no idea.

Give it a shot after you scan the downloaded program for virus and buggies.
