N91 and bluetooth attachement of unreckognized file format

I'm a very satisfied owner of N91, however, i ran into a problem :

I receieved a 130mb video file, in wmv format, from my friend's laptop, via bluetooth. Message came, with embedded file, into inbox, as usual (i needed to switch my message storage to hard disk, in order to receive 130mb file). However - file is wmv, and i can't open it, because i don't have any application associated with wmv files. Can't open -> can't store it anywhere either. That file is on my HDD somewhere, but it's useless.

I tried digging it with Y-Browser. Searched throughout the whole filesystem on all four mounted drives, could'nt find it. Tried - search for everything, but only larger than 100 megs. No results either.

Probably Nokia uses some form of fragmented database system to store inbox attachments. Came to this conclusions; either some kind of PC program that has access to BT attachments (PC suite doesn't show the message), either get a WMV player so i can open the file right on my mobile and then save it later, or either associate .WMV files, with Flash Player or something (program won't open it, but i'll have a choice to save the file anywhere on the file system after the program closes down).

Now, i haven't managed to find any PC program that can hook up to N91 and get bluetooth attachments, nor i managed to find any N91 compatible WMV player that associates with WMV files, nor i managed to find any tweaking utility that can edit file associations.

The only remaining thing i can think of, is to edit the associations manually. So, does anyone know where Symbian keeps record of those, in what file/registry? And if anyone knows more convenient solution to my problem, feel free to post.

Thanks in advance.

Can you resend the message to an e-mail? And then you can download to your PC and delete the cellphone message

Maybe works...
