Winmail.dat attachments!

Last Modified: 2013-11-30
I  have a client sending mail from a Entourage client through a exchange server2007,often the recipient will complain that they receive the attachement as a winmail.dat file.

The client is not interested in sending mail using plain text format which is one workaround for this problem ,he is also not interested in downloading the tgef converter,which is another workaround I have seen online.

Is there a way I can stop this attachment from going through on the 2007 exchange server ?The recipient needs to get the mail and attachment as it is sent.
