Re: How to open Application/OCTET-STREAM attachments?

The MIME type application/octet-stream is similar to the application/x-msdownload MIME type. A MIME attachment with the content type "application/octet-stream" is a binary file. It falls under the application category and is usually associated with the EXE file type. It will be an application or a document that must be opened in an application, such as a spreadsheet or word processor.

Re: How to open Application/OCTET-STREAM attachments?

Application/octet-stream specifies that the response consists of a sequence of bytes. The primary subtype of application, "octet-stream", may be used to indicate that a body contains binary data. Clients MUST use contextual information (for example, knowledge about what kind of response is being expected) to determine how to interpret the response.

What exactly are you trying to open? What file type? MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) is an Internet standard for describes message content types.Check the file associations for html and see if anything is associated with the .html extension.Also, do you have octet/stream listed under applications in the file associations menu?
