Are you using outlook?


I receive E-mail messages from a person that has attached pictures and/or files to the messages.

When I receive the messages I cannot see the attachments, only a file named WINMAIL.DAT.

I use Outlook Express 5.50.4133.2400 as my E-mail client and the other person uses Outlook 9.0.2416. Both of us have the send message option set to PLAIN TEXT but the messages still come to me with the WINMAIL.DAT file instead of the attachments. Is there something we are both missing?

What u both can do is get a free mail account from hotmail or yahoo cause the files you and the person are sending back and forth have a path which outlook can not open..
