Here's a simple and interesting one. Two users, both Mac OS X 10.6, both accessing Exchange 2007 server. One sends another an attachment. The recipient receives the attachment as a WINMAIL.DAT file, as if it were coming from a Windows client like Outlook Express and from the early 2000's.

Thoughts on why this is happening? How to stop it?
