Invalid file types in Windows from a MAC machine : LUSENET : Mac and Windows file type compatibility : One Thread

I am having problems opening MPEG and JPG files on my Windows 98 Second edition machine, which are sent via a MAC machine using Outlook Express. The MAC machine is sending the files as attachemnts, but when I try to open them I get a message that they are invalid file types.

Sometimes the file is also sent to me, not only as an attachemnt but is somehow at the end of the body of the e-mail note. I can see those JPGs this way, but I can't determine how they were opened.

Can someone expalain what the either the Windows or the MAC machine is missing in order to process those two file types on the Windows machine. I am also using Outlook Express.
