Winmail on MacOS Mail

Hi all,

a contractor for one of my clients has an issue when receiving emails from this client.  Their server is a SBS2008, she has an email account there with autoforward to her external mail.  So when an internal user sends her an email @company.com she receives it on @personal.com

Nothing odd so far.

Now, if an email is sent from a user to her company mail, she receives the attachment (so the forward does work), but if the mail is sent to her private mail, she only gets the annoying winmail.dat file....

From any other contact she works with, she will receive the mail just fine, but from that particular client, with this particular SBS2008 server, no attach.

(Reading myself I'm not sure I'm making much sense, hope someone can understand me)

Thanks.

Long and short of the above is that installing the freeware TNEF's Enough on the Mac should solve the problem of reading winmail.dat files.  The second link above is to the download site.
