    Hi guys ...

    Have a question here .. I uses Microsoft Outlook to send and receive my e-mails. However, I find that if I send out a mail which contains an attachment (irregardless of what type of files), the receiver of the intended e-mail will not get the actual attachment. Instead, the mail would consist of an attachment which underlines as winmail.dat.


    Any idea please? thanks!

    If I understand it correctly, you send (for example) a file called readthis.doc and the receiptant gets a file called winmail.dat? I have searched the MS Knowledgebase for this problem and I found a solution: KB 278061.
