Winmail.dat Viewers (Mac and Windows)

I occasionally run into a winmail.dat file that I can’t open (typically because some outlook user has “rich text” as their default email type. Although, occasionally they aren’t sure how this happened and the default is HTML or plain text.

I wanted to post on two utilities (one for MacOSX and one for Windows) that allows you to open these files and see the attachments contained within these annoying files. Thanks Microsoft!

Windows:
Winmail Opener

MacOSX:
TNEF’s Enough:

Useful little programs for getting around these problematic files, and definitely a lifesaver when you have a winmail.dat and need the contents.
