  • This is how I eliminated the winmail.dat annoyance (it worked for me, maybe it will for you):

    In the "Remote Domain" tab at the Organization Level, I configured Rich Text to be used "never".

    I also had users try text format for the messages with attachment (as opposed to either HTML or rich text).

    Second step may be overkill but at some point in the troubleshooting process it seemed to have a positive effect.
