The attachment is generated by Outlook.  Depending on the version it is called c.dtf or winmail.dat.  It contains the message in MS rich text format.  To avoid the problem the person sending the mail should uncheck the mark "send to this recipient in Exchange rich text format" in the addressbook (doubleclick the email address of the recipient to uncheck).
