I would find out what program they used to send the email. You can usually look in the email headers for this. In evolution:
View/Message Display/Full Headers

Then look for the line that starts:
X-Mailer

This may not be there. As far as that extension, that is usually a microsoft profiler command file. Which doesnt make sense to me. Virus perhaps?

Is it a proprietary file format that some company dishes out to you and they provide a special application to view it?

try running 'file *.pcf' and see what that output is.

Ok, the filename is something.pcf correct?

the command 'file' will try to detect what kind of file it is. If you want to open it, we need to find out what kind of file it is. Saying, a credit report, doesnt tell us what kind of file it is.
