        I'm not sure myself, a text editor or Libreoffice will display
        the raw data but apparently there is some format the data goes into.

        My daughter has nothing but Apple equipment and has been on the
        phone with them for hours this weekend trying to sort out some
        problem, came around with the phone in her ear still talking and
        asked if I could display those files. I have never seen anything
        that convinces me the Mac is easy to use! Always problems and my
        daughter is computer literate.

        Google describes them as some sort of record cards that can be
        displayed in OSX and Windows. I didn't find anything like that
        for Linux. I certainly don't want the stuff in my Thunderbird app.

        Just though there might be something I haven't found.
