I sent a Word .doc file from W2000 machine to my mail account, in Outlook (W2000) it opens fine, in Mozilla 1.6 (in XP) it comes through as "winmail.dat" and I can't open it -- I get garbage. What has MS done now? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open mail/news 2. Select email, double click on attachment (which has changed from its original filename to "winmail.dat" 3. Dialog asks me what program to use to open it, choos Word Actual Results: dialog shows garbage in window, regardless of program or encoding selected. Expected Results: The file should have come through with its original name "filename.doc" and should have opened on double-clicking and choosing "open with Word." This is a new problem that showed up the first time I tried to open an attachment after doing the SP update in Office.
This is not a problem of Mozilla as the same contents would appear trying to read the mail with other clients. Change your settings in Outlook to send mails as text or html, but not RTF. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 173693 ***
