    Who sent you the zip file?
    What is inside the zip?
    What are you using to unzip with?

    not 100% sure, its from a customer, could be a brochure

    by default, its BOM archive helper (what ever that is)

    OK, it's good that it's from a trusted source.
    Do you know the file type of the brochure?
    You might try StuffitExpander to unzip, although the BOM Archiver should be fine.

    Also, check out this thread to see if anything in it helps you out.

    Per file type, I meant is it a pdf, illustrator, eps , etc. type file. Not the zip itself. If it's not proprietary you could send it to me via PM and I could see if it unzips ok on my machine. Also, check out my edited last post for another link.

    It is really good thing that you are using a Mac. Based on your description (or lack of it), the attachment sounds more like a virus attached to an email which spoofs one of your customer's email address.

    Were you expecting a brochure?

    Does the text of the message indicate that it came from your customer?
