I have an exchange 2010 server. Some recipients were getting winmail.data attachments so i disabled RTF on the server.
a user RECEIVED a winmail.dat attachment that was supposed to be a pdf file. i used winmail reader to open it and it WAS a PDF attachment that i was able to open.
My question is. CAN EXCHANGE BE SETUP TO DECODE WINMAIL.DAT ATTACHMENTS BEFORE IT HITS THE SENDERS MAILBOX?
I haven't been able to find anything on that. My gut feeling is that it can't. it can't control what the sender sends or how their email program sends files. the sender resent it and the pdf came through fine.
