These are file attachments that have come from a Mac email client, probably Outlook Express.

The mac doesn't use file extensions to determine the type of a file (for example a JPEG), instead it uses a type ID and a creator ID which are part of the files info (including the created date, modified date, etc).  The ID's a are 32 bit longs and are normally ASCII coded for readability.  In your case all the creator ID's are 4A565752, which is 'JVWR' and if memory serves that is the code for "JPEG Viewer" a shareware image viewer, and the file types are 47494666 ('GIFf') and 4A504547 ('JPEG'), which makes since as all the file names say .gif and .jpg


Regards,
Keith.
