Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It is a file generated as an attachment by Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange Server. The name ATT00001 is a generic file name and is often seen in .htm, .dat, and other extensions when there is some sort of compatibility issue involving the sender and recipient’s Microsoft email program settings. They don’t usually contain any important user information.

    Date is not an issue, if it did not go for archive, just download the file/you can ask for resend the same to the sender and download to open the file.

    When I try to open this file, it came up in WORD and also encrypted. I received this attached to an email.

    @babsie123, right click on the file and select Open with option, here you may see Notepad, and try to open the same on notepad. Generally .txt is an extension of notepad for Windows OS. However, if the file does not open and still you see the junk characters, you may ask the sender to resend the same file again.

    I get these on occasion. They don’t usually contain any important user information. It's created by Microsoft when there are some email config issues.. You can always ask the  sender if they sent an attachment. I bet their answer is no.

    I cannot open an ATT00001.htm. It asks me to put a security code Ok. I have it. Simply, I do not know where.

    @delgio58: try saving the attachment to your computer. Then right click the file and select open with and select the browser of your choice. If you still have issues come back.

    @delgio58, this is basically a web browser based file. Whatever browser(s) you have there, just double click to open its default web browser. If it asks security code, check if there is any password already defined to open the same file. Or you can ask the source to send the same file or download the same from the same source/webpage.

    The short answer is to ignore those. There is nothing in them that has meaning to you. They're artifacts of MIME e-mail items and nothing more. They contain none of the actual e-mail message.
