I have a person that sends mail from Outlook 2010 on an Exchange server to someone using Windows Mail. Any included attachments do not show up.

Looking at the raw email that is received the attachments are embedded in the email text as winmail.dat, not as separate files.

Outlook is set to send mail as plain text.

Outlook can send the same mail to users with other email clients and the attachments are received, but not to the user with Windows Mail.

Any help would be appreciated.
