I believe SP1 could take care of the problem. Try it and let us know how
it went

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2003 winmail.dat

Hi all,


About a week ago we added an Exchange 2003 server to our organization
with plans to move our current users from our Exchange 2000 server.  All
the prerequisites for adding this second server (including the tests
recommended before install) were met and the install ation went well.
As is the case with most new implementations, I was the guinnea pig and
moved my mailbox over to the new server (2003) and I continued to
receive emails as normal.


I was informed recently that when I send an email with an attachment or
(god forbid) a stationery background to a user for which their mailbox
still resides on the Exchange 2000 server, the email appears with a
winmail.dat file in the Attachments section and the body of the message
is missing.  When a user on the E2K server sends me emails with
attachments or backgrounds, I receive them fine.


Any ideas or solutions?
