File extension .BDR
|Microsoft Publisher Border Format||Microsoft||Text Files|
The BDR file extension is a format strongly associated with Microsoft Exchange mail server for Windows. It stands for Exchange Non-Delivery Report Body File. BDR files are generated when an undelivered message is sent via the mail server, hence their other name, Message Undeliverable Files. These files store the various components, such as attachments or text, of an undeliverable email, they do not include any information about delivery failure or recipient incompatibilities.
Structure of a BDR file
A BDR file consists of two parts: The header and the body. The header contains administrative information about the message, such as its timestamp or size. The body stores the actual content data of the message. Structurally, the data of a BDR file is encapsulated using the MIME protocol – it binds message parts into a single file by pairing MIME type and Content-Transfer-Encoding attributes with binary data chunks. Furthermore, BDR files can include multiple parts (e.g. text and attachment parts). Other related file formats include: .MSG, .EML, and .ICS.
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .BDR) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .BDR extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .BDR file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .BDR extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .BDR extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .BDR file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .BDR file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .BDR file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .BDR file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .BDR file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
