The .rar file is not an image file format. Its a compressed file. The compression is rar compression hence its extension is .rar. You need to extract the actual images from the .rar files. As email-attachment has limited size to attach, hence the images are compressed by your friends into .rar files.

Download any tool like WinRAR or 7-Zip and install the software. Then when you double click this file, the software willl automatically take control of the file and will open it within itself. Then you would see the image files in there, Just drag the files and drop it on the desktop and then move it to a desired location.
