Why are jpg attachments showing up as winmail.dat files on my iPhone?


I haven't seen much directly relating to jpg formats becoming winmail.dat files, but it seems with the new iphone ios7 operating system, many other types of RTF and PDF sorts are coming in as winmail.dat files and who's to blame at the moment might be unknown. Some blame Microsoft while others are isolating it down to the new ios7.

I'll keep looking but this is what i found so far...

Cant view video attachment on my laptop


Why not? What type of message are you getting? Did you double click on the video attachment once it was downloaded to start it?

Try opening the video attachment from the download with the VLC Player.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

I can't play a movie with .mov extension


.mov files are specifically designed to play with Apple's Quicktime player. Try downloading the latest version of the Quicktime player from apple.com

Another alternative that resolves multiple issues for a variety of video formats is a FREE program called
VLC Media Player, downloadable for any operating system here:

Winmail to Outlook express 6


Outlook Express does not display any message attachments if TNEF-encoded file (winmail.dat) was received. If you are expecting some attachment, but do not see any, it still can be there.

To decode such a message perform the following steps:
  1. Save the whole e-mail message to an *.EML file via File, Save As, or Drag-and-drop.
  2. Open the *.EML file in a text editor such as Wordpad or Notepad.
  3. Locate the line Content-Type: application/ms-tnef;, and change the Content subtype to something else, such as Content-Type: application/zzz;
  4. Locate the line name="winmail.dat" and change to name="winmail.tnf". You may change the winmail part as well, if desired.
  5. Save the *.EML file from the text editor.
  6. Double click the *.EML file from the Windows File Explorer. This will open the message in a mail window and the TNEF attachment should now be available for saving.
  7. Drag the saved attachment into the Winmail Opener program. Decoded attachments will then be there and can be dragged or opened.

Regd the .dat file


You cannot open a data file this is only read by a programme or the operating system, but what may have happened is that you have been sent a file for which you do not have a programme for it to open with and windows has use the.dat as default. If you know who sent it and what file it is suppost to be, ask them what file it is eg a picture or video file and use one of your own programmes to open it using the right click and 'open with' method.
