    $\begingroup$ Hi Abdul, and welcome to Puzzling :) Where is this puzzle from, please? All puzzles from elsewhere need to have their source accredited or they may end up being closed. Also, do you have any ideas about this puzzle yourself? What have you tried so far? This would be useful for us to know... Thanks! $\endgroup$ – Stiv Oct 8 at 10:50
  • $\begingroup$ @Stiv yes its a puzzle given by one of colleagues, and we have been trying to solve it. $\endgroup$ – Abdul Kawee Oct 8 at 10:52
  • $\begingroup$ Are you sure you've given everything involved for this puzzle? Some bits of information, like the name of an image or description on the file, text in the email etc etc could be relevant. $\endgroup$ – Lio Elbammalf Oct 8 at 13:21
  • $\begingroup$ @LioElbammalf yes I am sure, thats what he only gave those 3 hints are all we got $\endgroup$ – Abdul Kawee Oct 8 at 13:48

We were unable to solve this puzzle, so our colleague who made this puzzle gave us the answer.

The answer is

"BE THE SMARTEST PERSON IN THE ROOM"

    $\begingroup$ Definitely cool! I can't figure out if the wingdings play a part in the logic of solving it, or if they are just placeholders? $\endgroup$ – Tonks Oct 11 at 10:46
  • $\begingroup$ Is it obtained by putting alternate black and white letters until e meaningful sentence is formed? Or any other analysis was necessary? $\endgroup$ – SamRoy Oct 11 at 11:01
