    Greetings:

    I recently purchased a iMac after being tethered to the PC since 1982. I am pleasantly pleased with the exception of receiving picture files as attachments on emails. The only indication other than the context of the message speaking to a photograph attached is that there should be a picture is a square with a question mark in the center. Is this due to certain types of files not related to the Apple OS? If so, do I need to install some form of decoding software to allow these foreign files to be opened with the OS? Any remarks or advice would be most appreciated.

    :confused:

    Ciao,

    You could save the image and then see the "Get info" with cmd+i or using secondary mouse button, to tell us what file type the "picture" file is :)
