  • Winmail.dat towards gmail accounts

    Hello all,
    I received complaints by an user who is a mail enabled contact in my AD, his external address is " ";
    he receive the winmail.dat by users in the mail system I administer instead of the attachements originally sent.
    I know from searches that it is a problem of message in format Rich text not supported at the other end;
    I don't know yet the mail client he use to view his mails and even the gmail system, so I asked if could be a feasible idea to set the message format for the domain as simple text format, by entering the domain into the "Remote domains" list and setting the appropriate options.
    I would like to keep the most of the features for my users though.
    Even a workaround would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Not entirely sure regarding your question but should they need to access the attachment, there are tools on Google that will convert the winmail.dat file in to the attachment (s).
