What is pmf file? How to open pmf files?

File type specification:

Various data file type icon Various data file type

PMF files are attachments files. They are created when local, non-MIME messages with sent with attachments. (Non-local (internet) messages sent without MIME are delivered uuencoded.) PMF files are linked with a message by a pair of header lines. The first header, X-file, indicates the name of the in the message directory. The second, X-info, indicates the true name of the file and the file type.
X-file: JZ14G997.PMF
X-finfo: DOS,"Real File Name.doc",,,,Unknown

PMFs will stay in the main message directory even if the message is moved to a folder. PMF are deleted when the host message is deleted. If you copy a message with a PMF attachment to multiple folders, they all share the same PMF file and deleting one of the multple messages will delete the attachment in all copies.

All versions of the Pegasus Mail can create these attachments, if the option "Use MIME features" is off and the message is delivered locally. Attachments created in previous versions are still valid. Howver, some early V4 revisions could not open PMF attachments. (Changing the "Is a valid MIME message" message propety was a work-around - This was fixed with version 4.2)
