    So I just received a file via email and its a .pub - I'm assuming from a windows machine. Its a quote for work, so I need to open it, yet I don't know what app will do it?

    Anyone have an idea?

    Thanks,

    i'm pretty sure that's a microsoft publisher file.. in which case you'll have trouble opening it..

    in fact, do microsoft still even make MS Publisher? i don't think they do..(i just installed office 2003 and it wasn't included..)

    perhaps pages will open it?

    I have had to deal with this a lot. It is indeed a Microsoft Publisher file. To this date I have not found any mac app that can open it. You will have to ask the PC user to change it to a .pdf or .doc file.
