Hello, all Technical pros – seek your help!
I have Windows XP desktop with Office 2007 and a Mac Laptop installed with Mac Office 2008. On Mac laptop I have regular Windows Word 2008/Excel 2008/PowerPonit 2008 and Windows Entourage 2008 for Mac (works just like Office e-mail). I can access my regular e-mail on both machines (On Windows via Office 2007) and on Mac via Entourage 2008. The big problem I am facing is when I attach a document (Word or Excel) then the attachment comes as Winmail.dat file as attachment on Mac laptop (via Entourage). I can not open this file. But the reverse operation is working fine, That is, when I attach a Excel in Entourage e-mail then I can read it fine on Windows Office 2007 e-mail. Any suggestion or ideas how I can open the .dat file? Thank you.


Software/Hardware used:
Office 2007, Windows 2008 for Mac, Winmail.dat

Do own research/experimentation first!! Sorry I did not follow the medicine that I prescribe my colleagues to do. I found the solution – just doing some searches. Even though I have not actually implemented the solution – I have enough information to solve this pesky problem.
