Winmail.dat on forwarded messages sort of
Posted on 2012-03-14
I have an account that has a foward to an external address. I have it checked to keep a copy of the message on my local mailbox.
When I send an email to my internal account I see it pop up and when I goto check my external address (gmail) I have the email + another one with just a winmail.dat attachment.
If I uncheck the box to keep a copy in my inbox it does not happen.
If I manually forward an email.... it does not happen.
If I send an email to my external address from Outlook it does not happen.
It only happen when the box is checked.
I need emails going to both addresses.
Things I have tried are
1) Went to IMF set message format to plain text with US ASCII (tried Western Eur) and set Exchange Rich text to never and restarted the SMTP service.
2) Edited the same in my contact in AD except there was no option for Exchange Rich Text so I set it to plain text and ensured use Mapi Rich Text was unchecked. I did try it checked just to see.
Nothing I have read on the interweb seems to work. I do not use outlook on a normal occasion and lots of other people do. So going to 1000+ outlooks to disable something is sort of out of the question.
Any hints or ideas or possible solutions?
