I'm having an issue with Outlook 2007 and attachments. I have users that can only access their mail from a web based interface and this interface does not understand MS Words infamous winmail.dat attachment. I know the problem comes from Rich Text emails or email composed in MS Word due Redmond's TNEF format.
In Outlook 2003 I have solved this problem by forcing all users to compose in HTML and uncheck "Use Word as my default email editor"
In Outlook 2007 the only way I have found to solve this is to force everyone to compose in plain text.
Does anyone know how to turn off Word as the default editor in Outlook 2007 or just disable TNEF all together? I do not want to force everyone to plain text. I know all of the trials and tribulations of using HTML mail so please do not post to lecure me on that. There are politics at play here that I have no control over.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
