Default EPS from AI PC. Problem file

A designer has sent me (twice) an EPS that originated in AI 9 for the PC (I opened it in a text editor to get this information).

But I can't view it in InDesign Mac CS, FreeHand Mac v.10, or FreeHand PC v.10, all of which complain about a missing screen preview. I can print it from FreeHand PC, but it complains that there's a problem with the file and it may not print correctly.

FreeHand 10 Mac offered to recreate the screen preview from the PostScript, but then still showed the grey box.

Is there anybody here with AI (preferably PC) who is prepared to try to open this file? Franca has tried to open it in CorelDRAW 9 and 12, with no success.

The file is about 1.6MB in size (which is somewhat large for an EPS of a simple logo).

If you are prepared to try this, please e-mail me on ann dot clarkson at dressageit dot com.

For those of you who recall my earlier problem with a local designer who goes postal easily, this is from him. He's being very pleasant (I haven't mentioned the two words, Macintosh and InDesign, that set him off), but I am unwilling to go back to thim for a third attempt in case I have to mention them to him.
