I have a client receiving WINMAIL.dat from certain external emails. I've been digging into this for hours but it appears I can only control outbound Rich Text and not in-bound, at the server level. This appears to be happening for multiple users inbound email.

If your users are getting winmail.dat..tell them to contact the sender and have them delete and recreate the contact they have for your users. It is a issue on the senders end

Is there anything at all on OUR side that can possibly be creating this winmail.dat ?

These end users having this issue refuse to believe it isnt their server.
