I have an office with 25 Windows 2000/Outlook 2000 clients an one Macintosh user. We moved from a pop3 email enviornment to  Microsoft Exchange 2000. Prior to the move, Outlook 2000 client could send excel an word  documents to the MAC with no issues. Now the MAC recieved a file "winmail.dat", and the excel file is not attached.  I can send an excel attachment from an outside pop3 source and it comes through OK.  I have allready tried changing the format from FTF to HTML and also tried plain text settings

This is a frequently asked question.  winmail.dat is a proprietary message encoding that
only Outlook (and Exchange) understand. Here are various resources discussing the matter.
