How to revert winmail.dat attachments to original content
Authored by: fungus on Aug 25, '06 12:14:38PM
Applications like TNEF's Enough are great, but this doesn't help the real problem. We need to prevent these files from being created in the first place.

Every time you get one, reply to the sender explaining that the attachment was sent in a Microsoft only format. They should send the message again in a format that is readable by the rest of the world. Also reference their own KB article. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/138053/EN-US/

Hopefully they will get a clue for future recipients of their messages.
