How to decode ms-tnef on a mac
Posted on 1997-07-23
Does anybody know how to decode an attachment of the type tnef on a PowerMac?
example: Attachment: Type: application/ms-tnef
They seem to be coming from the obscure world of Microsoft's 'Exchange' and 'Outlook'. I know how people can change there sending preferences in those programs. However they will not or cannot change these settings. Maybe they simply do not understand what the hell I am talking about.
It is not nice to send someone a mail he or she cannot open. As far as I know the tnef thing is not a accepted mime standard and should be avoided on the open inter net.
But for now it would come in handy if there exists an application or way to decode this tnef on a Mac, and you knowing the answer, reading this, responding to it.
Not working are: Mpack, decoder, uuencode and all unstuff programs.
I do have Microsoft software running on my PowerMac. Office, Explorer and ms mail & News. Not that I use them very often. Mostly I use other 'Mac' software. I need these to communicate with those equipped with windows whatever. But this time they failed.
So please help me because I like to be able to open the tnef and find out what they contain.
