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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
