How to revert winmail.dat attachments to original content
Authored by: rwinchester on Aug 25, '06 07:54:16AM
A recent-switcher friend of mine just wrote yesterday with this problem, and I found an easy solution online: Josh Jacob wrote a freeware converter called TNEF's Enough. It works perfectly on any Winmail.dat attachment. So... cheers to guys like Josh who do all the research on this stuff and release their work for free. That is why the Mac community is awesome.

Yeah, I have seen a couple of conversion programs, but as far as I know while they can open the attachments they don't save it back to the email do they? I got into a situation where I was on many computers and didn't want to have to keep installing other programs to view attachments.

Also, I don't think the programs decode the formatting part of the messages. 9 times out of 10 it doesn't matter, but I for one like to see such eyecandy!
