How come if I send an e-mail from MS Outlook that has an attached Powerpoint Presentation everyone, who I assume, does not have a Microsoft Mail program, receives it as a WINMAIL.DAT file, and therefore cannot open it?  Do I need to do something different?  Is there anything I can do?  Please let me know as soon as possible, it is kind of an emergengy.

As far as I know, it has nothing to do with not having Power Point.
There is something screwed up with outlook.
If you want to view ppt files doc files or any other office files without installing the whole office pack you can always download for free only viewers for the specific files from the msn site.
make sure that the people who send you mail won't write in reach text and I maen the text itself and not the attachments. If the mail will be sent in plain text you'll be able to see them + their attachments.
