in this case it's a jpg file ... all what you now need to figure out what encoder I used to make the conversion ... then use some tool that can convert it back to jpg...

can you put the file on megaupload or rapidshare, etc, etc somewhere we could take a look at it?

I know to determine file type sometimes you can open a file up (given it's not monstrously huge) and you have enough ram in a program like notepad or edit.. Personally I like Notepad++

and the very first thing you would see is what type it should be. it doesn't always worked... but for telling if a file is a rar, zip,7z, etc worked for me before when some idiot removed the extension, it might work for you in this instance.

edit: i forgot to mention your file might just be uuencoded
