As far as I can see, these are the standard RTF-containing WINwhatzit
goodies that MS Exchange inflicts on the rest of the known universe.

I'm looking at them on a Mac with:
o SimpleText
o Word
o FrameMaker
o Eudora Pro
Lotsa encoded garbage; no crashes.

They download more rapidly than web GIFs on my tired old desktop system
(Centris 650, 16MHz, 14.4 modem). I don't like'em, but I wouldn't accuse
them of being disease-bearing pseudofauna. [Stop that, Katherine Elizabeth.
<slap> You promised to behave yourself if I removed your muzzle.]

I just let'em dribble into my Attachments folder, and try to remember to
delete them at least once a day.
