Sending attachments from Outlook 2000 to Macintosh

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

"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.

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.
