Problem opening an encrypted message attachment

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem

Recipient receives a message from LPME with a message.pgp attachment. Opening this message with PGPdesk creates another file "message" with no file extension

Symptom

Recipient receives a message from LPME with a message.pgp attachment. Opening this message with PGPdesk creates another file "message" with no file extension


Resolving the problem

The enclosed "message" file is actually a MIME stream of the message. By renaming the attachment to message.eml, the file can be opened.
