can't open jpeg file

Somebody has sent me about 20 jpeg images. I could open all of them except one. This one was bigger than the others (I don't know why), its size was 952041.

Gimp's answer was: "don't know how to load JPEGSs with 4 color channels".

What can I do?

(I am a new user of gimp. I am working under AIX.)

When in doubt, use file command ($ file filename) to detect what kind of format the file has (not the first time someone names a file with the wrong extension).

If it really is a JPEG, I think ImageMagick's convert can read those CMYK / RGBA files (it seems some app decided those in kinds of JPEGs are readable by everyone without notification) and save to something readable by Gimp, like PNG.
