Subject: [exchangelist] The infamous Winmail.dat - Exchange & Oulook 2003

All of our users send & receive in plain text email. Today, one of my
users send a regular email with four MS Excel attachments, to several
external recipients.

The recipients received the email but with only one attachment, which
was called the infamous Winmail.dat.

I have been searching the 'net, but most deal with Exchange 4.0, 5.5
and Outlook 98.

Thank you,
