Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi Tonynz,

You see the winmail attachment because the email was sent from Outlook in rich text format rather than plain text. The attachment is only relevant to Outlook, and does not contain any additional information rather than the formatting of the email you’ve received.

Hope this helps!
