I would probably be spending some time playing with Global Settings ->
Internet Message Format -> * -> Properties; the "Message Format" and
"Advanced" tabs.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2003 Winmail.dat

Hi all, 
I posted this message once before but maybe it will catch the attention
of someone with new information?

About a two 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 installation 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
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?
