Anybody know what to use to play a .al format sound?

It's perhaps just an aiff that uses A-Law compression. Try adding .aiff to the end and open it in Quicktime. If that doesn't work, try using Videolan Client.

Nope. Neither worked.

Can you post a link to where we can get the file and try it in various players?

It might be in an unrecognised container. You can try opening it in Windows media player as I've seen it associated with that.
If you can't post a link, can you post the contents of the file header? You'd do this by opening the file in a hex editor like this one:
You won't be able to copy and paste the code because the browser won't reproduce it but if you could take a picture of the first page or so and upload the screenshot.
I've seen links about this format used in a digital answering machine, is that where the files come from?
